A havurah – from the Hebrew word haver (friend) -- is a group of people who gather to form a Jewish community. Typically small and with informal leadership structures, havurot (plural) create opportunities for life-long friendships and meaningful memories. Activities include Shabbat or holiday meals, havdalah, Sunday brunch, park playdates, book clubs, social justice work and many other common interests.
- For those who indicate a desire to join a havurah, the answers to these questions will help us to match you to a new or existing group in our Beth Meyer community.
- For those who are in a havurah already, we will ask you about the kinds of events you participate in together, your demographics, and whether you are interested in new members and community gatherings.
- For those who are not interested in joining a havurah at this time, your answers are still important to help us develop other programming of interest to you and other members.
