In Person. Havurah is a fun and meaningful way for children to develop their Jewish identities and build Jewish community. Through explorations of Jewish values, rituals, stories, and culture, the Havurah experience sparks wonder and joy, builds confidence, and inspires creativity.

The study of Jewish holidays, the Hebrew language, Torah stories, community service opportunities, and exploration of Jewish identity are significant parts of every child’s Havurah experience. Skilled teachers listen to and collaborate with the children to identify aspects of these diverse topics that are most interesting and appropriate for their particular group of students, allowing the Havurah curriculum to be co-constructed by the children and their teachers.

Havurah is a drop-off program designed for children in Pre-K–Grade 1.
