Welcome

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 Message from Rabbi Weintraub

January 5, 2021
2020 and 2021

As we marked the New Year, we also saw a large number of harsh messages bidding the past year farewell. News headlines, TV pundits, and hashtags all joined in the chorus: “Good Riddance, 2020!”; “2020: Over and Out!”; “20?20: Great for vision; terrible year!”
