Thursday Night Live!

Sign Up Now for Thursday Night Live beginning Jan 18, 2015

Take the Purim Story, add a little Marx Brothers, some Adam Sandler, a bit of Sarah Silverman, a dash of Mel Brooks and a dash of Seinfeld. Mix in some pop culture, and flavor with the crazy imaginations of class members and you’ve got Thursday Night Live. The workshop series, led by Matt Dorter of Mainstages, will be held on Thursday evenings 5:30pm – 7pm January 8, 15, 22, 29, February 5, 12 and 26. We end with the performance of a Purim spiel (a comedic show related to the themes of Purim) Thursday, March 8 for the entire community. Click here for details.

WE’RE GETTING GREENER FOR GOOD

Recently, Kane Street Synagogue was selected to participate in a Jewish Greening Fellowship (JGF) for 2013–14. JGF is an 18-month environmental leadership program offered by the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center with the support of UJA-Federation of New York. The program, which will begin in February, aims to “cultivate environmental change leadership, reduce the environmental impacts of Jewish organizations in the New York area, and generate meaningful responses to global climate change while strengthening Jewish Life.” Kane Street’s JGF will be implemented by a Staff Fellow (Rabbi Val) and a Board Fellow (Ariel Krasnow), with commitments from our Senior Leader (Rabbi Sam), and Lay leaders (our Board of Trustees). To learn more or to actively participate in the programming, please contact Rabbi Val or Ariel Krasnow.top music torrent
