The term Havurah is derived from the Hebrew word haver, which means friend. Havurah reflects a group of Jewish people brought together through the sharing of similar ideas and experiences. Havurah is about family, friends, having fun, and being connected within your Havurah, the Temple, and the Jewish community.
Getting to know people in a larger congregation can be intimidating to some. A Havurah is a terrific way to become acquainted with others who live near you, and have similar interests.
