Chavurah Program

A chavurah is a small group of individuals, couples, or families who meet in each others' homes or other venues on a regular basis to socialize, learn, engage in cultural activities or in tikkun olam (acts of repairing the world), and celebrate Jewish life together.

The Hebrew word "chavurah" comes from the root word "chaver," which means friend. A chavurah (plural is chavurot) is a group of community members who join together to enrich their lives and reinforce the spirit of Judaism in themselves and in their children. Chavurot do not replace other events at Har Shalom. On the contrary, they supplement and support our community's social, ritual, and educational activities. 

Each chavurah is autonomous as to its practices and principles and not led by Har Shalom staff. They are friendships, joys in and of themselves. Successful chavurot help us all develop a stronger sense of community, even as Har Shalom continues to grow.

To be matched with a new chavurah, please complete the form at the bottom of this page before April 30. Participants will be matched and notified of their new group in early May. Please note you must be a member of Har Shalom Center for Jewish Living to participate. There is no cost to participate in a chavurah. Direct any questions to Tal Bloom at
