There’s still time to make a Giving Tuesday Contribution!
Help Care for Our Torah Scrolls

Kane Street is blessed to be the home of eight Torah scrolls, which have come to us from many different congregations and communities over the decades. These scrolls have ably served our community over thousands of Shabbatot, holidays, B’nei Mitzvah, and shiva minyanim. But as our congregation and needs have grown, our sacred scrolls are increasingly in need of repair.

Contribute to our Torah Repair Fund this Giving Tuesday!

On Thursday, October 12, Kane Street hosted a gathering of people from across the brownstone Brooklyn Jewish community to grieve, mourn and pray for those murdered, kidnapped, and missing in Israel.

A Prayer for those in Captivity

The One who blessed our forefathers…
may they bless and safeguard and preserve the captives
among their brethren in the House of Israel in trouble and captivity.
In the merit of the prayers of this holy assemblage who pray for them,
may the blessed Holy One shower compassion over them,
and deliver them from darkness and strife, remove their bondage,
deliver them from their afflictions,
and return them speedily to their families.
