Havurot

 

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.

Most importantly, a havurah provides an opportunity for you to meet others who share your values and interests.

  • Celebrate Jewish holidays together
  • Study together
  • Social action projects
  • Travel together
  • Pray together

Benefits

  • Your Havurah becomes your extended family
  • Havurot create secure and constant ties to the wider Jewish community
  • Havurot help Judaism remain a constant source of joy

Or Chadash Blogs Elul:  Check Us Out!
For the last few years, Rabbi Phyllis Sommer has embarked on a social media project to prepare for the High Holy Days through reflection and introspection in the month of Elul. Her project, #BlogElul, has resonated with Jews across the world, and has given rise to a lot of Elul content in social media–and now it’s time for Or Chadash to join the movement! During the month of Elul, as we prepare to receive the year 5776, members of the Or Chadash community will create posts centered around the themes provided by Rabbi Sommer. This blog will collect these posts and allow us to engage in meaningful conversations via comments and perhaps even your own responses on your social media. We encourage you to participate in the worldwide conversation in order to enrich your Elul experience.

We will collect those posts in a the blog which will allow us to engage in meaningful conversations via comments and perhaps even your own responses on your social media. We encourage you to participate in the worldwide conversation in order to enrich your Elul experience. If you're interested, please email  office@orchadash.org
