A Havurah (חבורה Hebrew: “fellowship,” plural: havurot) is a small group of like-minded people who gather for shared Jewish experiences. As they create memories together, they learn, pray and play. Most havurot place an emphasis on egalitarianism, in the broadest sense, depending on leadership and participation by all the group members, rather than looking to clergy or other Jewish professionals to create the programming.
Havurot do not replace synagogue life. Instead, they extend that sense of community by creating “a family within the Temple family,” smaller friendship groups within the synagogue community. They are focused on promoting friendships and community among members. Regular gatherings might include discussion-based learning, group singing, participatory prayer, food and fellowship.
