WHAT IS A HAVURAH?
Havurah is a small group of CBE members who meet
monthly, with or without children, to share Jewish
learning and experiences in an "extended family"
setting. The Havurah experience is for people who
are seeking a smaller scale Jewish community and are
willing to give of themselves and work towards
building this unique communal bond.
WHAT DOES A HAVURAH DO?
Havurah decides its own program based on its own
needs. One Havurah might be involved in a
self-taught Bible-study unit, while another may be
going on a retreat to Lake Arrowhead; another may be
inviting speakers in to raise and answer questions
on a chosen topic while another may be planning
their next holiday celebration involving adults' and
children's projects. Whatever you and your fellow
haverim (friends) decide is a meaningful program can
work for you. Of course, the Havurah Steering
Committee is always available to offer advice and
help when asked.
