    Even if you don’t keep Kosher, this fun three-part series with Rabbi Sydney Danziger will answer all your burning questions about the Jewish dietary laws, from the frequently asked “what's the issue with eating chicken with milk?” to the more theoretical “would lab-grown meat be Kosher?” 

    During our first session, we will learn some of the basics about Kashrut, the laws behind kosher eating, and where they originated. 

    Our second session will deal with the modern movements of ethical and eco-Kashrut. 

    Our third and final session will explore some juicy topics around modern food production, such as GMO’s and lab-grown meats, and what impact they might have on the Kosher food world. For some added fun, we will be enjoying a pot luck brunch together and perhaps a group trip to the Ballard Farmer’s Market. 

    This series is free to partners and $15 for non-partners. We'll send out confirmation details before each of the three sessions with location details to those who register.

    • Magnuson

    Tisha B'Av is the saddest day on the Jewish calendar, commemorating the destruction of the Temple (twice - in 586 BCE by the Babylonians and in 70 CE by the Romans) and numerous other tragedies that have befallen our people throughout history, and also kicking off a period of introspection that leads us towards the High Holidays. 

    As the sun sinks below the sky and the 9th of Av begins, members of the Kavana and Moishe House communities will gather in Magnuson Park. The evening will begin with a short learning session and will continue with a reading of the biblical book of Eicha/Lamentations in a combination of Hebrew and English.

    • Queen Anne Farmers Market

    Join fellow Kavana families with babies and toddlers at the Queen Anne Farmers Market! We'll gather around 5pm, buy dinner at one of the many food trucks, and enjoy fresh fruits and veggies.

    Join Rabbi Rachel, Rabbi Sydney and musician Chava Mirel and other members of the Kavana community for this lovely summertime gathering -- a short but engaging and music-filled Shabbat service and catered communal meal at a beautiful park.  These gatherings are always well attended, and are a great way to get to know other members of the community, in a low-key and meaningful way.

    • North Cascades (near Concrete, RSVP for location details)
    This annual camping trip is geared towards everyone in the Kavana community -- kids and adults alike.  If you're newer to Kavana, or looking to get to know other members of the community that you might normally not cross paths with, then this is the trip for you! There will be a nice mix of scheduled meals and activities in addition to a lot of down time for games, hikes, s'mores, etc.   

    Some answers to our FAQ to help you determine if this trip would be up your alley:
    - Showers and restrooms are conveniently located near the group site. 
    - For those of you coming with kids, you might like to know that there's a playground near the group campsite, and this is a great park for riding bikes/scooters too. 
    - The group shelter even has electrical outlets, so technically you could bring a coffee-maker or other small appliance (although then we'd have to call it "glamping" rather than camping!).
    - We have reserved one cabin that currently has three open beds for anyone that might be interested. Please email Liz (info@kavana.org) for more details.

    • Kavana H.Q.

    Schedule & Location: The Gan runs from 9am - 1pm during the school year. Vacation days are mostly in sync with the Seattle Public Schools calendar and the Jewish calendar -- please reference the confirmation email for a list of dates that the Gan will not run during the school year. The program runs Monday - Friday (you pick which 3, 4, or 5 days work for you!).  This program takes place at Kavana H.Q. in Queen Anne.

    Tuition: The Gan meets from September to June.  Although different months may have more or fewer Gan days (based on vacation/holiday schedules), our annual tuition is broken into 10 equal monthly payments.  How much you pay will be based on how many days a week your child attends the Gan; the monthly partner rate is $178/day of the week, and the monthly non-partner rate is $200/day of the week (if paying by check).
