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.
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.
Kavana has hired Rabbi Sydney Henning Danziger as a Rabbinic Fellow of the Jewish Emergent Network, an organization comprised of the leaders of 7 path-breaking Jewish communities from across the U.S.Learn More
Kavana's programming includes a wide array of Jewish and communal activities, including Jewish learning opportunities, Shabbat & holiday celebrations, social justice & community engagement.Calendar of Events
