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.

Cooperative Model

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.
