What to Expect

Once a month, members of the Kavana community gather for an uplifting morning of prayer and study.  The Shabbat Morning Minyan is a traditional (mostly Hebrew) service which features lots of singing, harmonies, and great energy -- so it appeals to participants from a wide range of Jewish backgrounds.  

Rabbi Rachel Nussbaum and a growing corps of volunteer daveners lead sections of the service, and you can see Kavana's co-op spirit in action as many minyan folks take turns reading Torah, chanting haftorah, and giving a dvar torah (short sermon).

Rachel Nussbaum co-founded Kavana in 2006 and serves as its Rabbi and Executive Director. Thanks to her leadership, Kavana has received lots of recognition for its innovative approach to building Jewish community, and Rachel’s responsibilities run the gamut… from teaching and counseling, to dynamic prayer leadership, to re-working the synagogue model for the 21st century. Originally from Charleston, South Carolina, Rachel holds degrees from Duke University and the Jewish Theological Seminary. She has been a recipient of the Bronfman Youth Fellowship, the Wexner Graduate Fellowship, the AVI CHAI Fellowship, and the Joshua Venture Group Fellowship; more recently she helped to found the Jewish Emergent Network and serves on its executive committee. Rachel resides in Seattle's Queen Anne neighborhood with her husband Noam Pianko and their three children, and the whole family enjoys the outdoorsy, low-key vibe of the Pacific Northwest.
