About Us

B’nai Havurah is affiliated with the Jewish  Reconstructionist Movement,  which is committed to the renewal of American Jewish life. Reconstructionists define Judaism as an evolving religious civilization that encompasses history, literature, art, music, land, and language. We achieve this through study, worship and joyous practice, social justice, acts of kindness, and connection with the Jewish people. We are egalitarian and participatory community, open to a variety of perspectives and forms of religious expression.

Our Members

B'nai Havurah's members come from all walks of life and from all demographics.  With more than 240 households, the community is comprised of young families, seniors, blended families, singles, empty-nesters, and elders. Our commitment as a Reconstructionist community is to be inclusive and welcoming, and through our numerous programs and havurot and opportunities for involvement, we aim to reach and connect with our diverse membership.

 


Over the years, the B'nai Havurah community has encouraged us to experience Judaism as a creative, democratic, humanist, egalitarian and joyful way of life.  These Reconstructionist concepts have enhanced our knowledge and appreciation of Jewish life.  Throughout  the years, our havurah has nourished us with close friendships with people who share the same values; where we celebrate the good and sacred times together and support each other through the difficult ones. B'nai Havurah has provided three generations of our family a supportive environment that invites participation where we may grow as individuals and contribute to our community.
