What is a Chavurah? 

A Chavurah is a group of people who gather to form a community. The word "chavurah" comes from the Hebrew word "chaver", which means friend. In joining a Chavurah, one has the opportunity to develop life-long friendships with Temple Sinai congregants who have similar interests. 

What does a chavurah do?

What a Chavurah does is entirely up to its members. Each group decides on the activities -- some celebrate holidays together, some attend temple events; others prefer gathering for dinner or social activities, and some like to organize educational opportunities. Most Chavurot do some combination of all of these things. 

How often does a chavurah meet? 

This is up to each Chavurah. Some groups set a regular monthly or bi-monthly get-together. The activities take place in members' homes, at outside locations, temple events, or wherever the group would like to meet. 

How large is a typical chavurah? 

Each group varies in size. We recommend a minimum of 12 adults; however, there are no hard and fast rules about the size. Chavurot are formed for families and/or individuals. 

How do I join?

If you are interested in joining a Chavurah, please complete the application form. New Chavurot are formed regularly. You will be placed as soon as enough applications are received to form a new group, or when there is an opening in an existing Chavurah that fits your needs.

Feel free to contact with any questions.
