Planning an Activity

Havurah Shalom encourages our members to explore new ideas and activities to help us fulfill our mission to be a diverse and engaged Jewish community that promotes spirituality, learning, and acts of social responsibility.

These guidelines can help you plan a Havurah activity:

Given the many ways people can participate at Havurah and our great number of committees and teams, you may find it helpful to read about our governing structure to determine which person or group to contact for support in planning your activity. You'll find the names of our committee chairs here and the names of other community leaders and contacts here. Member contact information can be found in our directory, which you can access by logging onto our website as a member. After you log in, you'll find a link to the directory at the bottom of the drop-down menu under "community."

If you have an idea for a new activity but don't know how to begin planning it, these Principles and Practices and this Decision Making Graphic can help. Our Gesher ("Bridge") Team can help you, too. The team members and their contact information can be found on the Principles and Practices document.

The gesher process emphasizes shared leadership, places responsibility for and ownership of programming at the committee level, and emphasizes collaboration and communication among Steering, staff, clusters, and committees.
