Havurah means "fellowship.” Our Havurah program consists of groups of like-minded temple members who get together on a regular basis to share a meal and camaraderie. Some Havurot share holiday meals and celebrations together or gather to discuss topics of Jewish interest, while others are strictly social. Group sizes vary as well, since meetings are held in one another's homes.
Havurah is just one more way the friendly members of Temple Emanu-El get to know each other better, forming an even closer relationship. They also provide a fun way to participate in temple activities and special events. Most Havurot become like extended family, enjoying good times together and supporting one another in sad times.
