Kadima Reconstructionist Community is building a progressive community of inclusion, social justice, and Jewish tradition for Jews and our allies. Committed to racial, economic and gender justice, we bridge spirituality and social justice through Shabbat and holiday celebration, inter-generational learning, and solidarity work with #blacklivesmatter, immigration justice organizations, and movements to end the Israeli occupation.
All events occur at Kadima, 832 32nd Ave (Inside Madrona Grace Presbyterian Church) , Seattle, WA 98122, unless otherwise noted.
