Havurah Guide

By: Benjamin Maron

Using the Havurah of South Florida as a model, store Mitch Chefitz published the Havurah Guide [PDF] in 1990. Twenty years later, the contents are still useful for those looking to start a havurah or minyan or wanting to find suggestions for improving an existing minyan or havurah.

The Havurah Guide provides a comprehensive introduction. Many topics are covered, from how a havurah or miyan could be run to guidelines for fostering a Jewish fellowship; from the role of text study and how to nurture learning to which holidays and life-cycle events can be observed; from how to incorporate social action to other resources for further programming.

While this is a case study of a specific havurah, we can all learn from each other’s communities across the country (and around the world). If you use part of this Havurah Guide, please let us know in the comments. If your havurah or minyan has practices that would complement this resource, please share them!

Benjamin Maron attended his first NHC Summer Institute as an Everett Fellow in 2006. He is on the NHC Board of Directors. He is chairing the 2010 Chesapeake Retreat.

That true botanicals mist sounds SO nice! And the cloud paint was a product I really liked – I did not think it would be as pretty as it is when I first saw it, but it’s great!

Wow. That must be it. The film critics are all too entranced by REALITY TV to appreciate fantasy films. That’s why critics all hate The Wizard of Oz, 2001, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Pixar movies, and why Jersey Shore is the most critically acclaimed television out there.

Hi, Nice website!
Food manufacturers often put small amounts of healthy ingredients in their products to fool people into thinking their products are healthy. There are companies that try to change their labels to look more healthy and there are companies that are dedicated to creating the healthiest food and products possible.


We are your healthy lifestyle advocates.
