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.

- Sh'mini Atzeret and Simchat TorahHavurat Shalom Congregation, Somerville, MA
Join us for combined Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah services. Today's services include Yizkor, Hallel, reading the end and beginning of the Torah, auctioning (not for money!) of the special aliyot and dancing with the Torahs!
These services will be in the backyard, where we still have the holiday tent.
Services at Havurat Shalom are led by the members and usually involve a lot of singing. All welcome!
