Room Parents and Havurot

Room parents encourage members of their classes to attend social and educational functions during the year. A Havurahis an informal gathering of friends, in our case within our synagogue community. In addition to SJS-wide Havurahprogramming, we encourage classes or special interest groups to form their own Havurot. Further, our room parents contact new families and pair them up with mentor families. The types of gatherings that we informally encourage parents to do together are: bike rides, Starbucks get-togethers, walking together on the trail during Sunday and/or Wednesday SJS hours. The types of gatherings that we informally encourage families to do together in havurotwiththeir children include: apple picking, going to the Pavilion at Sunset Woods for kickball and frisbee, playing board games on Shabbat afternoon, a Chanukah party, Havdallah, Family Promise volunteering, Maot Chitim volunteering or Cradles to Crayons volunteering. It is our hope that these Havurot will build organically to be able to celebrate together and to be able to call on one another during challenging times. We will keep our community updated on the room parents for each class. Special thanks to Michelle Maer for coordinating this program.
