Open Beit Midrash

We are so excited you’d like to join us for the 2023-24 Open Beit Midrash season. Registration will open on Friday, October 27th. Please check back at to sign up on Friday.

Sneak Peak of Dr. Andrea Lieber’s December Class:

Finding Light in the Darkness: Chanukah and the Persistence of Hope 

Chanukah celebrates the unlikely victory of a tiny band of rebels over a powerful empire, a counter-cultural fight for religious freedom, and the miracle of a flame that refuses to be extinguished. In this three-part series, we will revisit the classical sources that shaped our understanding of this often-misunderstood holiday. Our goal is to find new meaning in this ancient story and fresh inspiration to guide us through the challenging times we find ourselves in.

December 7th: Defining the struggle

December 14th: Who is a hero?

December 21st: Re-dedication–bringing the community together

On Thursday, October 12, 2023, 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.
