The word havurah comes from the word haver, meaning friend. A havurah is a small group of individuals who gather together for a variety of reasons: to socialize, celebrate Jewish holidays, learn more about Judaism, and participate in social action projects.
The Havurah format allows congregants the opportunity to interact in an intimate setting and form lasting bonds by creating community. Participants find an "extended family" in the Havurah in which to pursue social, intellectual and educational growth. The Havurah is a family within the temple family.
Members form lasting bonds of friendship that play an important role during times of joy and sadness.
Most importantly, a havurah provides an opportunity for you to meet others who share your values and interests.
Havurah membership is open to all Temple Solel members.
Because we want to find just the right group for you and insure your havurah will be a perfect fit, the process may take some time.
