What is Kavana?

a welcoming & diverse community cooperative
encouraging personal judaism

Kavana is an independent Jewish community in Seattle.  Together we are building an innovative, model community that
empowers each of us to create a meaningful Jewish life and a positive Jewish identity.


As the first Jewish cooperative of its kind, partners share in the task of creating Jewish life for the group.

Non-DenominationAL & Pluralistic

Kavana draws participants from diverse backgrounds and provides for multiple entry points to Jewish involvement.


Kavana believes that Jewish communal life best thrives in settings which are local, organic, and intimate.
