What to Expect

Once a month, members of the Kavana community gather (virtually during the pandemic) 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).

The Shabbat Morning Minyan will begin at 10am and take place on the following dates:
Oct 17
Nov 21
Dec 19
Jan 16
Feb 20
Mar 20
Apr 17
May 15
