Getting to know people in a large congregation can be intimidating for some people. A Havurah is an easy way to become acquainted with others who have similar interests. Each Havurah usually consists of 6 to 12 couples, families or up to 24 individuals who meet on a regular basis to celebrate Jewish life. The group decides what kind of activities in which they would like to participate. Some activities involve children, others do not. Either way, a Havurah allows synagogue members to make friendship connections within the larger congregational family as a member of a smaller group. Each Havurah plans its own social, educational, and spiritual activities to meet the interests and needs of the group.

There is no membership fee to participate in a Havurah. For more information about CAI's Havurot, please contact Debra Lytle.
