"Havurah" comes from the Hebrew word for friend.

Have you heard about Temple Emanu-el's Havurah program? "Havurah" (plural "Havurot") comes from the Hebrew word for "friend." Here at Temple Emanu-El, a Havurah is a group which offers friendship and an extended family within our community.

Havurot gather for holidays and Jewish experiences, but also, like any friends, for social occasions or 'just because.' For years, Temple Emanu-El members, especially new members, have found that by joining a Havurah, they have developed close, lifelong friendships.

We're embarking on re-imagining how Temple Emanu-El helps coordinate Havurot among our members. COVID may have isolated us, but, whether you were previously in a Havurah or only wanted to be, we now have the opportunity to start fresh and make new friends. Please answer some short questions (in the link) to let us know that you're interested!
