Havurah does not have any specific criteria for membership. We allow anyone to join. We only ask that you have an honest interest in being part of our Jewish community. To discuss membership, please don't hesitate to email Brad Pector, our Communications and Membership Coordinator, at Brad would be happy to meet with you and answer any questions you may have!

Look over our new member form, and if you've talked to Brad, you can drop the form off at the office, mail it in, or fill it out electronically and email it into

Havurah offers great flexibility with regard to dues; we don't ever want finances to be an obstacle to membership, so we allow members to self-adjust dues. Karen Westerman, long-time Havurah member and past-president, would be happy to discuss this with you. She has been a wonderful, compassionate, financial counselor for many years.

You will find a wealth of information about Havurah’s activities and programs on our website. If you are not sure about membership, but would like to receive our monthly email updates to get a sense of the community, you can email Brad at and he will add you to our non-member email list. You can also check out our previous weekly emails and our monthly newsletter.

We'd love for you to become part of our community!
