Li’fi Dati: As I See It

A Message from Rabbi Weintraub

I write during the week of Parshat Lech L’cha, when we study, and read on Shabbat Chapters 12-17 of Genesis. The focus of the text shifts in these chapters. We leave behind the descriptions of the origins of the natural and human worlds, and we begin to read about the story of a particular people, the Hebrews, founded by Abraham and Sarah.

The beginnings of this story are hopeful, innocent, and visionary. G-d chooses Abraham and promises “I will make you a great nation. I will bless you. I will make your name great, and you shall be a blessing… and all the families of the earth shall bless themselves through you”. (Genesis 12:2-3)

At Kane Street, we bring the wisdom and compassion of Jewish traditions to all, regardless of one’s background. Within our community are very traditional Jews and secularists, families and singles, straight and gay. Our members include many Jews-by-choice (converts) as well as interfaith families and Jews who are returning to their roots. We are rightly regarded as a community where any sincere person can find a place.

We'd love to meet you. If you have questions, feel free to contact Rabbi Sam Weintraub, Marla Cohen, our Executive Director, or Rabbi Valerie Lieber, our Director of Education and Family Programming. For questions about preschool, contact Peggy Geller, director of Kane Street Kids.
