What we're about

Welcome to Havurah Simchat HaLev – Joy of the Heart

Serving Palm Beach County Florida

Welcome to Havurah Simchat HaLev! Come pray with us, sing with us, learn with us, dance with us, meditate with us, share food with us, meet new friends and build community.

We are an open, joy-filled Jewish Renewal Havurah welcoming people from all backgrounds, ages, denominations, sexual preferences and interfaith families as well as spiritual seekers. We invite you to experience Shabbat with us at our monthly service, holiday celebrations and special events.

Music, prayer, Torah talk and food (of course) will always have a part in our meetings. Service leaders include Rabbi Leon Olenick, Rabbi Louis Reiser, Rabbi/Cantor Adala Caplowe and singer/guitarist Paul Schreiber. Many others in the South Palm Beach and Broward communities who have been instrumental in engaging in Jewish spiritual life, social justice issues, caring for the sick and dying, are also part of this group. Scholars, singers, musicians, artists, computer folks, professors, dancers, good eaters and cooks are a part of this group.

We are informal – did Moses wear a suit and tie at Sinai? And we are fun, serious, musical, scholarly.

We will be engaging the best resources from our wealth of Torah, and prayers and offering services that connect us in a meaningful, modern way to what is holy and sacred. All voices will be heard during our Torah discussions. Non-Hebrew speakers and those just starting and curious about things Jewish, will have text that is accessible, translated and transliterated.
