A Perspective on the Havurah Movement

By Bernard Reisman

Eugene Borowitz, September 7, 1979

The establishment of havurot was an attempt to change the status quo of Jewish community belonging and create a more inclusive and welcoming option. While not all havurot are the same, most share four basic features: sense of community, active participation by havurah members, egalitarian-democratic, and a Jewish rationale.
