I was at the first Kavana Shabbat dinner and service at Gas-works park. From that experience I knew this was a community that would work for me.
As a regular at Living Room Learning, I love the regular connection to text and the cycle of the year. This year's Yom Kippur was the most meaningful one I've had. I usually see YK as a holiday to be endured, but this year was able to find moments of reflection, solitude, community, joy, and connection. It helped me enter the new year with a feeling of serenity.
As a board member I'm learning about governance and finances. It is always a pleasure to work with the board, as they are a talented and dedicated group.
Kavana gives me a sense of belongingness in Judaism.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the connection to other Jews of many different backgrounds, knowledge levels and experiences. Everyone is welcome and made comfortable.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
revolutionize Jewish connection among Seattle residents.
