A Gift to Our Community: the Kol Nidre Appeal

We hope you’ll be able to to contribute to Kane Street’s Kol Nidre Appeal, as we celebrate a High Holiday season like no other. Our community depends upon your commitment: your time, participation, and financial support. Your Kol Nidre Appeal gift is essential to the Synagogue’s financial wellbeing, as membership dues and program fees do not fully cover the cost of activities – staff, supplies, technology, security and more – that make Kane Street such a dynamic community. If you have already donated, thank you! If not, please consider making a contribution today.
