Planning an Event

Havurah Shalom encourages our members to explore new ideas and events to help us fulfill our mission to be a diverse and engaged Jewish community that promotes spirituality, learning, and acts of social responsibility. If you are thinking of planning an event or activity at Havurah, the following documents can serve as guides for both logistics and developing a vision for your effort.

We also rent our facility to outside organizations when we have openings. Please see the calendar and consult our policies below.

Event Planning at Havurah and Worksheet for Event PlanningThese documents will be updated when Havurah's Staffing Task Force has determined the best staff configuration for Havurah. In addition, due to adjustments during the pandemic, event planning now involves Zoom meeting rooms and, in some cases, both Zoom and in-person gathering spaces. Please contact the office to learn more.

Additional Resources

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 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 "Contact."

If you have an idea for a new event but don't know how to begin planning it, this Decision Making Graphic can help. Our Gesher ("Bridge") Committee can help you, too. 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.
