The Synagogue Journal: 1856-2006

Kane Street celebrated the Congregation’s first 150 years with an online historical journal. The publication highlights our rich historical record in thirty-five issues, drawing on original source material, oral histories, minute books, financial ledgers, souvenir journals, newsletters, and stories of the nineteenth century from the Brooklyn Daily Eagle Online. Each issue explores a specific theme of the Congregation’s experience during its historic periods. Contact Journal editor Carol Levin at

The Scroll

This publication sent to Kane Street Synagogue members comes out before the holidays. The Scroll was first published in 1932 by Rabbi Israel Goldfarb and Irving Weissler. In recent decades it was edited in turn by Rachel Epstein, Julia Hirsch and Ellen Fleishman. After a ten year hiatus (1997-2007) it was revived by Judith R. Greenwald, it’s current Editor.

Members are welcome to serve as reporters on assignment. The Scroll does not publish prose fiction. Advertisements, classified or otherwise, will be published for a fee. Other submissions are most welcome, subject to editorial discretion, based on newsworthiness, length, relevance, and literary and journalistic merit. Opinions about the Shul must be confined in a Letter to the Editor.
