Welcome to Kane Street!

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, Engagement Director Rabbi Jason Gitlin, Executive Director Mickey Dobbs, or Rabbi Valerie Lieber, our Director of Education and Family Programming.

Li’fi Dati: As I See It

A Shavu’ot Message from Rabbi Weintraub

May 10, 2021
How We Progress?

The Spring—at least for Jews in the Northern Hemisphere—is anchored in and framed by two central Holidays, Passover, this year March 27, and Shavuot, this year May 16.

Pesach is the holiday of our national birth. We were freed after 400 year of avdut, slavery in Egypt. Shavuot is the holiday when we received the Torah and entered into a special, mature covenant with G-d and with one another. The two holidays are separated by seven weeks.
