Lunch and Learn Saturday, May 3

After Kiddush around 1:00 PM
Joel Chasnoff as The Schizophrenic Zionist!
The outspoken Sabra. The selfless fundraiser. The peoplehood-minded rabbi and the left-leaning pacifist… Will the real Zionist please stand up?
In his hilarious and insightful one-man interactive theater piece entitled The Schizophrenic Zionist, comedian Joel Chasnoff addresses the question “What does it mean to be a Zionist in the modern world?”

Wine, Women and Yoga

Shabbat Chol Hamaed, Saturday, April 19, after Kiddush
This is yoga for every woman – no experience necessary! Enjoy a very gentle movement class that focuses on breath, hand positions (mudras) and mindfulness with Charlene Visconti, a certified Integrative Yoga Therapist. No special attire necessary either – you’re regular Shabbat attire is fine. After the class, we’ll continue to relax with wine and conversation. We will not be able to accommodate children at this event and ask for you to make babysitting arrangements. Please consider making a $10 donation after Shabbat that will cover the cost of wine and food.
RSVP to by April 17. Sponsored by the Shvesterhood

Yom Ha’Shoah April 27

Sunday, April 27, 5:30 PM
This year Kolot Chayeinu and Park Slope Jewish Center are jointly hosting a communal service at Park Slope Jewish Center that is for the entire community. In addition, this year we are focusing on the current generations of Jews in our area to keep alive the memory of the Shoah. For the first time we are asking you to sign up to study one or more brief texts and select the name of a victim in whose memory you will study. We ask you to try to do that from sundown April 27 to sundown April 28.
Please download the flyer, and click here for more information and details about this year’s Yom HaShoah
We look forward to seeing you on April 27.

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 music torrent
