Kevah, selected three years in a row by Slingshot Fund as one of North America’s top innovative Jewish organizations, offers an innovative approach to adult Jewish education. Instead of specific classes offered at a set time, individuals get to bring to life a learning group of their own design. With Kevah’s support, each group host brings together 12-18 people from their own social network, the group chooses a topic, time and location (usually in the comfort of a friend’s living room). Kevah provides an outstanding educator skilled in discussion-based learning and ongoing administrative support to help each group thrive.

Founded around a Berkeley kitchen table in 2008, when four friends created a pluralistic network of Torah study groups that appealed to their own do-it-yourself ethos, Kevah has expanded throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, Boston and now the Denver/Boulder metro area.
