Sell Your Chametz
The sale of Chametz (leavened food) before Passover is an important observance of the Holiday. Please take a few minutes to complete our “Sale of Chametz” form. We ask that you specify on your form a donation for Ma’ot Chittim, a special Passover fund to enable needy Jews to observe the holiday.

Kane Street Book Club Debuts in April
Thursday, April 20 at 7pm at Kane Street
First Selection: The Faith Club
All are welcome to join us every other month to dissect and discuss book selections that will vary on topics for each meeting. This is a fun excuse to participate in thoughtful conversation over tasty wine and light snacks. We will be reading The Faith Club for our first meeting. The book tells the story of an American Muslim woman who befriends two other mothers, one Jewish and one Christian, and their decision to educate their children about their respective religions. The club’s reading will be open to people from all communities. Contact Corrine Kotler at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to join the group.
Enjoy Salon Social Experiences While Supporting Youth Programs
Salons are social get-togethers that we offer at our annual Trivia Night/Auction to help raise money to support our programming for kids and families at Kane Street Synagogue. We have some spaces at the salons still available. Gather your friends to attend the Berg’n Craft Beer Tasting, The Wine Tasting Dinner or the Bottom Line with Nightclub Founder Allen Pepper. And if you want to attend the Men’s or Women’s Steak and Scotch Nights, you’d better hurry because spots are almost gone.
Please see fuller descriptions of the gatherings and registration information at this link:
Exterior Restoration of the Sanctuary Building is Underway
If you have visited Kane Street recently, you have likely noticed that the exterior of the sanctuary building looks quite different. Scaffolding now encircles both the east and west towers and covers the north (Kane Street) façade, reaching up past the roofline. This exciting milestone represents the commencement of restoration work on the building exterior. It marks the final phase of a process that Kane Street launched several years ago, when we started to take steps to ensure the physical integrity and historic character of the sanctuary exterior.
Details of these new developments are outlined in our January 2017 Update. We encourage members to continue to provide feedback by writing to email@example.com.
