The three weeks between Shiva Assar B’Tammuz and Tisha B’av mark a period of sadness and mourning – framed by two fast days – in which we remember some of the greatest tragedies of our history, including the destruction of the First and Second Temples, and the exiles which followed. During this period, festivities and indulgences are avoided or limited. For example, traditionally, we do not schedule weddings and other joyous occasions during the Three Weeks. In fulfillment of the Rabbinic dictum “When Av begins our joy is diminished” (Mishna Ta’anit 4:6), from 1 (Rosh Chodesh) Av to 9 Av, (sundown August 4 to August 14) we take on other restrictions. For example, many avoid eating meat and drinking wine during this period, except on Shabbat. Please click here to read the full text.

Thank you to all who attended the recent community-wide meeting with H3 Architecture, as well as any of the small-group interview sessions. There will be additional interview sessions later in the summer, and another community-wide presentation by H3 in the fall. We also encourage everyone to share their thoughts via email at any time, directly to Design@KaneStreet.org. Messages will be read and considered as part of the design process, by the architects at H3 and by Kane Street’s Building Committee.
Kane Street has made significant progress in our effort to revitalize and renew our historic sanctuary. We are pleased to announce a number of exciting recent developments, including a grant from the New York City Landmarks Conservancy, the engagement of H3 Hardy Collaboration Architecture for the sanctuary interior, and a new look for the capital campaign. For more details, take a look at the June 2016 report.
New students’ deadline is August 1.
