    As the sky darkens and the stars come out, we will mark the transition from Shabbat into a time that's totally other... the fast day of Tisha B'Av, a powerful ritual of collective grieving.  We'll start with a potluck Seudah Shlishit (Third Meal) -- that is, the sharing of food as we spend the waning hour of Shabbat together -- before moving into Tisha B'Av. Rabbi Josh Weisman (Kavana's new Rabbinic Fellow) will lead a brief text-study and discussion providing the opportunity to reflect on the personal meaning of what has been and is being lost. We will chant and read Eicha (the Biblical book of Lamentations) in a combination of Hebrew and English... All are welcome to join us in grieving together for the brokenness of the world, then and now. We are partnering with our friends at JConnect for this gathering.

    We hope you will join us for a fun-filled weekend from August 10th - 12th at a campground along the beach in Skagit County (yup, we're changing up the campsite this year to get a view!). All are welcome to participate -- this event brings together folks from all of our cohorts -- single adults, families with kids and older adults. Think: singing around a campfire, beach-combing, yoga on the grass, Shabbat meals with a lovely community of friends, board games, and of course S'mores!  Added bonus the Perseid Meteor Shower is that weekend!

    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, the group campsite is right next to a big play field and a very short walk  to the beach where you can swim and beach comb.
    - We have reserved one cabin that currently has four open beds (and is pet friendly) for anyone that might be interested. Please email Liz (info@kavana.org) for more details and additional costs.

    Join Rabbi Rachel and Rabbi Josh 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 local 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.  

    **
    Registration will close at 9AM on the day of the event to allow for enough time to finalize the catering order and to pack and purchase the rest of the supplies. Thanks for your understanding!**

    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).
