About Us

Havurah Shalom is located at 825 NW 18th Ave, between NW Johnson and NW Kearney. Founded in 1978, we have grown from a small group of families to a membership of nearly 400 families. Affiliated with Reconstructionist Judaism, Havurah has a progressive approach to Jewish life that integrates traditional, communal Jewish practices with the intellectual and political impulses of democracy and pluralism. We are open to all who want to connect with Judaism, including traditional Jewish families, single people, couples of mixed faiths and/or races, and people of all gender identifications.

Empowered and supported by our rabbi, educator and music coordinator, Havurah members take leadership roles in governing, educating, providing music, taking social action, davening and reading Torah on Shabbat, and leading and leyning during High Holidays services. Our High Holiday services, attended by roughly 1,000 people, have been open to the public, with no payment or tickets required, for more than 30 years.

The emphasis on active involvement distinguishes Havurah from most other congregations and allows members to become truly engaged in Jewish community. It enriches individual experience, deepens family relationships and friendships, and creates a strong, intertwined community. Each member has the opportunity for equal participation in determining the direction and goals of the community.

All are welcome at our High Holidays services, Shabbat services, and holiday celebrations!
