Havurah

OUR EXPERIENCE  

In 1971 we were looking for a way to celebrate Judaism with our two children then ages 2 and 4.

We had the good fortune to help start a Havurah - the Hebrew word for "fellowship" - a small group within or outside an institution which designs non-traditional celebrations for the Jewish holidays and studies together. Our Havurah was not connected to a temple or any Jewish institution. During its fifteen year existence we: had sunrise services for Rosh Hashanah at Plum Island in Newburyport, Massachusetts; wrote our own Passover services (including making a movie of the story of Moses); held Purim parties; and went away for weekend retreats.     

LET US HELP YOU

Let us help you take control over how you express your Judaism through a Havurah. It is nearly impossible to imagine the positive feeling that comes from learning about Jewish observances and then having an experience consistent with your values and beliefs. With our support, you will:

  • Review your Jewish background
  • Consider various structures for your Havurah
  • Recruit and bring together participants
  • Read relevant material 
  • Decide on the content of your Havurah
  • Develop a calendar of events for the first year
  • Design, plan and implement the first activity - a participatory, creative, joyful and extraordinarily rewarding experience for all.
