Review for KAVANA, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Kavana is the perfect combination - innovative, thoughtful and welcoming. The programming is of superb quality, and caters to a really diverse range of interests. There are a lot of people who just don't fit into traditional synagogues, but they can make a place for themselves at Kavana (and they do!) I think that Kavana's entrepreneurial approach encourages folks to take responsibility for theit own Jewish lives, but gives them the resources and community in which to do it. This is the future!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that I feel confident and optimistic about my ability to build a Jewish future for myself.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

professional, charming and fun.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the way Jewish communities are organized in Seattle, across the U.S. and around the world.

Ways to make it better...

I had discoverd it sooner.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

overwhelming demand and managing growth - everyone wants to be there, but they'll have to be careful in figuring out how to expand.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Kavana is willing to take risks - and so far, they've really paid off.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
