"doing jewish stuff" - an experiment called NITA

By Noa Kushner

Synagogue 3000, November 2010

Nita (Hebrew for, "We will plant, we will grow") is an experiment in "doing Jewish" differently. As one of Synagogue 3000's Next Dor pilots, Nita has spent the last year plus creating a new model of community led by Kushner who describes her rabbinate as "... one part sales, one part emunah (faith), and one part chutzpah - a stubborn refusal to give up on my generation of Jews." In this S3K report, Kushner reflects on the creation of Nita and its development over the last year. If we do Jewish differently, what does it mean to be a member? How do new communities pay their way? What's in store for the future?
