Review for Kavana, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I suppose on some level I must have been searching for a Jewish community and organization to belong to, after being out of things for a while. However, I don't think I really knew it until I met the folks at Kavana. There's just something terribly contagious about the warmth, sincerity, humor, curiosity, intelligence, and..."kavana" that permeates the group, from Rabbi Rachel on downward (...upward? around?). "Multiple entry points to Jewish involvement" is a very nice phrase but the reality of it played out in a room full of eager participants with something to share is even better. Yasher Koach!

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

...ordinary people just like me. I know it sounds silly, but it's inspiring sometimes.

Ways to make it better...

Some of the events I've attended have been pretty big. That can be exciting and it speaks to the popularity of the programs, but personally I tend to be a little more comfortable in smaller settings.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
