A Havurah, which comes from the Hebrew word for friend, is a group of synagogue members - couples, families, singles, or a mix of these - who meet regularly for Jewish socializing, learning, and celebration. Havurot are a great way to make new friends and create a small community within the larger synagogue context.
A havurah is an integral part of synagogue life, not an independent entity. Belonging to a Temple Emanuel havurah offers members a great opportunity to get together in a smaller group with others of similar interests to plan programs which meet their unique needs.
Each havurah takes on a personality of its own, reflecting the thoughts and interests of its members. Meetings can be varied but usually fall into the following three basic categories: Socialization, Holiday & Shabbat celebration and Life Cycle events.
