Additional Group Interview about the Sanctuary

Thursday, August 25, 7:00 pm
We are thrilled that so many members took part in conversations about the sanctuary during the series of group interviews held in June. If you were unable to attend, join us at this additional group interview, which will again be facilitated by H3 Architecture. We want to hear from as many members as possible during this exciting time for Kane Street. Please RSVP to

The “Drei Vochen” The Three Weeks – Shiva Asar B’Tammuz (17 Tammuz) to Tisha B’av (9 AV) 5776, July 24 to August 14, 2016

The three weeks between Shiva Assar B’Tammuz and Tisha B’av mark a period of sadness and mourning – framed by two fast days – in which we remember some of the greatest tragedies of our history, including the destruction of the First and Second Temples, and the exiles which followed. During this period, festivities and indulgences are avoided or limited. For example, traditionally, we do not schedule weddings and other joyous occasions during the Three Weeks. In fulfillment of the Rabbinic dictum “When Av begins our joy is diminished” (Mishna Ta’anit 4:6), from 1 (Rosh Chodesh) Av to 9 Av, (sundown August 4 to August 14) we take on other restrictions. For example, many avoid eating meat and drinking wine during this period, except on Shabbat. Please click here to read the full text.
