What we're about

This group is operated by Havurat Shalom Community Seminary 06/01/2021.

Havurat Shalom is a small, pioneering, egalitarian Jewish community founded in 1968. We are a lay-led congregation where people come to pray, celebrate, and grapple with Jewish texts and traditions and work for social justice. We welcome and include among our members people of all genders and sexualities. Our community has singles and families of different configurations, including interfaith families. Our building has an access ramp and we work to be accessible to people with disabilities. We welcome people who are exploring Judaism.

The Havurat Shalom Meetup will invite you to Shabbat services, holiday services, shared meals, classes and more.

Urban Forestry Walk and Talk

Havurat Shalom Congregation

Somerville’s leader of Urban Forestry, Vanessa Boukili (pronounced BOO kee lee), will tell us how we can help care for young street trees. Vanessa will give us the dos and don’ts, along with the whys and the hows, as we take a short walk in the vicinity of the Havurah to check in on our newest leafy neighbors. Meet in the back yard of the Havurah shortly before 5:30pm. No registration required. Presented in conjunction with CREW, Communities Responding to Extreme Weather.
