Our education programs are designed to support families as they forge identity and generate personally meaningful Jewish life. With programs for kids and parents to learn both together and separately, we offer a fun-educational approach that is child-centered and hands-on.

Covid Note for 2021-2022 Year
All of these educational programs were designed as in-person experiences; last year all of them took place exclusively online due to Covid safety issues. This year, we’re trying to return to in-person as soon as we can, but the Delta variant is making it tricky. 

In order to proceed safely, some Kavana programs will begin the year on Zoom and others in-person but outdoors. These adjustments in format may necessitate other changes (e.g. in timing, group size), and we are committed to rolling with changing Public Health recommendations as nimbly as we can. 
As always, Kavana’s staff will seek to make solid decisions and communicate clearly with families throughout the year.
