About Us

The Kitchen is one part indie shabbat community, one part San Francisco experiment, and one part toolkit for DIY jewish practice. We’re building a connected, spiritually alive jewish generation and a new resonant approach to religious life in San Francisco.

We believe that jewish religious practice can transform: It can change lives, make meaning, and invest people in the world. This transformation requires a living ecosystem of Jewish experiences. We believe this ecosystem can be flexible in new ways without giving upon its impact.

We know the challenges are great. But the prize, a transformative religious community with room for many expressions of serious Jewish living and a collective power to do good, is even greater. We are doing nothing more than other generations have done before us, insisting on harnessing the power of Jewish life in our time.
