Havurot and Affinity Groups
At the core of Jewish renewal, a havurah is a small group of individuals and families who celebrate, play and pray together. Havurot (plural) provide a more intimate experience than is possible in our larger congregation. Each havurah has a unique focus. Some of our school families also form small affinity/ social groups on their own.
Below are a list of current havurot and small groups. They are usually open to new members although at times they are full.
Fourth Friday Havurah Style Shabbat: Welcome in Shabbat in an intimate setting. Small teaching and vegetarian potluck dinner. Members take turns leading. Nevei Kodesh, 3269 28th St. Please bring a dish to shre.
Other groups form depending on members' interest. Please let us know if you'd like to help start a new group. Contact Dena Gitterman.
Kosher Hams - Jewish renewal comedy/satire performance group. Videos available. SEE KOSHER HAMS PAGE!
Mussar (Ethics) Group - Bi-weekly meeting where we use the book "Every Day Holiness" by Alan Morinis as a guide to work on specific midot (ethical qualities) on our own and then share within the group. Group opens up a few times a year for newcomers. If interested, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Nevei Kodesh Women of Delight: Meets Sept-June on the third Wednesday evening of the month. Women's Listening Circle to women of Nevei Kodesh who are looking to deepen their connections to each other and to navigate their way through life's paradoxes together, month by month! As we get clearer about our deep truths (and dreams) our vitality for life quickens. This is a multi-generational group in which safety and confidentiality will be held as sacred. Please feel welcome to come each month, or drop in whenever it feels right.
