Class Representatives and Havurot

Class representatives encourage members of their classes to attend social and educational functions during the year. This year we are connecting the class representatives with our Family Havurot program. A Havurah is an informal gathering of friends, in our case within our synagogue community. In addition to SJS-wide Havurah programming, we encourage classes or special interest groups to form their own Havurot. Further, our class representatives contact new families and pair them up with mentor families. The types of gatherings that we informally encourage parents to do together include: 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 havurot with their 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 class representatives for each class. Please click here to contact Mr. Sherman for more information.
