Chavurah Program
We are living in unprecedented times. The coming year will bring many challenges, and now, more than ever, we need Jewish life. Judaism provides us the opportunity to sanctify time, find joy and gratitude, seek comfort in community, cultivate resilience and act for justice. Introducing Chavurah, a new family-based program for our current moment. Family units will come together to explore big Jewish concepts chosen specifically for the current moment. We’ll celebrate Shabbat and holidays together and build a kehillah kedoshah (holy community) of comfort and support. Learn more. Contact: Alex Lyon, Youth Education Program Director

Funded in part by the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund.
