Review for Kavana, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been slow to fully participate in Kavana's variety of experience believing that only time would reveal whether this Jewish Community was truly different from others I have attempted to become a part of. And my patience has been rewarded. This is a community of bright and engaged people who want to explore religion, community, ethnicity, ethics, values and ideas. They provide forums and activities which allow for disccussion, exploration and fun. I feel very lucky.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the surprising discovery of my interest in Judaism and its role in my life and the lives of those around me.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Probably search out a few more 'elders.

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

It's welcoming nature; the high quality of discussion and study; the encouragement.

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

Wonderful and inviting.

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

Change the world (at least for those Jews who gave up trying to find their place and their community)!

Ways to make it better...

I keep hoping for a few more members over 50 - but the organization is still new.

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

As usual - money for all of the projects they wish to sponsor.

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

I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to be a part of this new way of approaching community.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
