Review for Kavana, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Having raised sons in Michigan, where we were active in our Temple, I found that only Jewish camp experience fostered the sense of Peoplehood and joy in being Jewish that is lasting. Kavana has been able to capture my grandchildren and all the many children of all ages in enthusiastically learning our traditions and the fun of actively being involved in preparing for and celebrating our holidays. Rabbi Rachel is the Peid Piper and both my 8 year old granddaughter and 6 year old grandson adore her.The concept of involving all the generations of each family in activities forges a bond that extends into each home. At age 80, having lived in many different parts of the country, I find Kavana to be unique.

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

listening to my grandchildren participate in our Shabbat celebration, preparing for the various holidays and seeing the arts and crafts items which they proudly display.

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

That all the members of each family participates in the activities which fosters a sense of truly belonging to the Jewish Peoplehood - a wonderful feeling.

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

Intelligent, welcoming and charming.

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

Spread its mantle further to include more families and hire more staff. Kavana is truly innovative and makes being Jewish fun, while not neglecting the teaching of Judaism.
