Religious Life

Prayer without Heart is like a Body without Spirit”

Bachya ibn P’kuda – “Obligations of the Heart
Spain, 11th century


Every week, we offer a variety of warm and inspiring services at Kane Street. We are delighted that people from many backgrounds, Orthodox and Reform, observant and secular, have found community and spirit at our prayers. Services at Kane Street are a wonderful mix of traditional melodies, Hebrew songs, Torah chanting, lay leadership, the sharing of wisdom, and joyous spirit. We currently use the Sim Shalom and Lev Shalem prayer books (the latter offers transliteration for those new to the service), and the Etz Hayim Chumash.

An active Ritual Committee organizes services. Prayer leadership is shared equally by all genders, and our Torah and Haftarah readers are lay members of the Congregation. Our roster of lay leaders has grown as the tradition of learning service leadership skills continues amongst our members—many of whom learned about Judaism only as adults. The lay leadership of our Services is a proud hallmark of Kane Street and reflects the great value which we place on broad community education and participation.

If you would like to lead any of our services—Friday night, Shabbat Shacharit, Musaf and Mincha, or Sunday Shacharit—please contact our Rabbi Michelle Dardashti or Liturgical Director Cantor Sarah Myerson. Kane Street sponsors a variety of programs and courses to enable the community to fully participate in synagogue life.
