Sanctuary Restoration Update
Over 80 Kane Street members joined us on January 14, 2016, to learn about plans for the sanctuary façade and towers. The event featured a presentation by Robert Bates, principal at Walter B. Melvin Architects, and we are pleased to share this report, which includes an update on the project and historical photographs of the sanctuary. This event was the first in a series of discussions about the restoration of our beautiful synagogue.
Kane Street Knows Purim!
Purim is around the corner, and at Kane Street, we know Purim! Sign up to sponsor mishloach manot and share Purim greetings with the entire Kane Street community, while supporting the synagogue. Deadline: Wednesday, March 16. Also, don’t forget to buy raffle tickets for a chance to win a trip-for-2 to Israel. We will draw the winning ticket at Purim services on March 23.

Kane Street Synagogue – Open Beit Midrash
Tuesday, February 16: New Beit Midrash Course on Judaism and Aging with pioneering thinker and spiritual guide Rabbi Dayle Friedman
Our next Beit Midrash mini-course— February 16, 23 and March 1– is “Growing Older, Growing Deeper and Wiser”.
Today, life after sixty often presents an unprecedented and confusing mixture of vitality and productivity along with some physical decline. Through text study and engaging exercises, students will examine key challenging of aging and join to find meaning and mission in the years ahead.
Rabbi Dayle Friedman is a chaplain, spiritual director, social innovator and scholar. She has pioneered the development of a Jewish spiritual vision for aging. She is the author of Jewish Wisdom for Growing Older: Finding Your Grit and Grace Beyond Midlife and Jewish Visions for Aging. She is the Founder and Director of Hiddur: The Center for Aging and Judaism, based in Philadelphia. For more information about Rabbi Friedman’s vison and work, go to www.growingolder.co
