B'nai Havurah

Welcome to B'nai Havurah in Denver, Colorado!

We are an inclusive, participatory Jewish Reconstructionist community (Kehillah) that is passionately committed to experiencing Judaism by infusing tradition with renewed meaning in a contemporary American context. We do this through study (Torah), worship and joyous practice (Avodah), social justice (Tikkun Olam), acts of kindness (Gemilut Hasidim) and connection with the Jewish People (Am Israel).

B'nai Israel Trip - March 20, 2017

Join Hal Aqua & Rabbi Evette Lutman as B'nai Havurah returns to Israel on another transforming journey to the Jewish homeland. This will be an off-the-beaten-path trip, giving you the chance to engage with various populations in Israel, including Jews from both the secular and religious communities, Druze, Bedouin, Arab-Israelis, Palestinians and African Refugees.

You’ll engage your senses through art, food and the sights and sounds of Israel. If this will be your first time in Israel, you’ll understand the feeling of members who went on the trip in 2015, all agreeing that it was a profound and transforming experience, with a surprising spiritual component. If you are returning to Israel with B’nai Havurah, we'll show you an Israel you haven't seen before.  Come make this Jewish journey with us!
