Havurot are becoming more and more widespread in Jewish communities throughout North America. The concept, however, is not a new one. Ancient Jews, who were dissatisfied with contemporary aspects of Judaic practice, formed havurah-like groups. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.54 no.2, Winter 1977.
