Jconnect Seattle
October 30, 2009

I've been meeting with the Rabbis at Jconnect for a while now. One-on-one, they've been a great help in helping me figure out my place in the community, as well as my place with the greater context of American Jewry. Also, I took a language class there once. It was pretty affordable, and the teacher was wonderful. We had lots of personal time, and my classmates were good people to learn with. Jconnect at the UW Hillel is just a great local hub for Jews. It has cultural programs, as well as religious ones. It's indispensable!

KAVANA
October 21, 2009

As a Soviet Jew who moved to the United States at age 9, I have had my share of struggles with finding community. My upbringing was devoid of the more sublime aspects of Jewish culture and religion. Kavana was the first organized Jewish experience I have ever had that seemed to speak directly to me. When I arrived at an event, I was welcomed warmly, but without pressure. I felt free to think and observe. The members of the community were friendly and open to a new person. Rabbi Rachel was genuinely friendly and interested. Their programs are diverse, so I can always find something that appeals. It is non-denominational, which frees the services to be whatever works for the members, and indeed Kavana's approach to Judaism seem to fill a hard-to-define need. I am happy to have found Kavana!
