At Havurat Shalom, we have a great love for davenning (prayer). The singing is spirited, the prayer is focused, and the Torah discussions are thought provoking. Services often include extra readings, discussion, meditation, and other creative additions. We read from the Torah on Shabbat mornings. Services are led by Havurah members.
Our Shabbat services take place every Friday night at 7:00 pm from May through October (6:30 pm from November through April) and every Saturday morning at 10:00 am except for a few select weekends during the year when the Havurah is on retreat. Those weekends will clearly be posted in the events calendar on this page, so feel free to check back here for the latest information. Friday night services are approximately an hour long; Saturday morning services run around two and a half hours.
From November through June, on the first Shabbat morning of the month we have a separate children's service geared towards people ages 4-9. Each month they come together to learn a little Hebrew, study Torah, sing and snack. It corresponds to the time of the Torah service at the adult minyan, approximately 11:30. This service does not take place on the few weekends a year when the Havurah is on retreat. We offer childcare most Saturdays starting at 10:15 a.m. for children 18 months and older on a first come, first served basis.
Year after year people pack into our small building to experience Rosh Hashanah
and Yom Kippur at Havurat Shalom where singing and a sense of community
fill the air. All are welcome to attend High Holiday services at the Havurah
without tickets or any charge. If you need any disability accommodations for
the High Holidays, please email email@example.com
or contact us by phone.We also celebrate other Jewish holidays throughout the year. Highlights include
davenning in our Sukkah, hilarious Megillah reading and skits
on Purim, and all-night Tikkun study sessions on Shavuot.
