Hebrew School with the Havurah! @ Narberth Presbyterian Church
Sep 21 @ 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm

 

 

Welcome to the Narberth Havurah’s Hebrew School. Jewish life is a journey of the heart, mind and soul. Our school strives to be instrumental in enabling that journey.

Our school aims to foster positive Jewish identity and a sense of community in each student. We help students gain the skills and knowledge that enable them to feel comfortable and empowered as participating members in the Jewish life of their families, the Narberth Havurah, and the larger community.

To this end,  our school is based on the idea that Jewish education as well as Jewish living should be intellectual, emotional, spiritual and fun! Jewish living goes beyond these four pillars to include communal responsibility that is based on our values — values that have been developed over our long collective history.

Our school is a place where students are challenged to live out the universal values of kindness, respect, inclusiveness, and justice for all people. With many of our students coming from interfaith families, we affirm that Judaism is one of many paths that teach people to live wisely and well. For more information, please contact our Director, Barbara Weissman.

“Spirit of Shabbat: Shabbat morning service @ TBD - info will go out via Havurah emails
Sep 25 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

JOIN US IN THE SPIRIT OF SHABBAT SERVICE!

Shabbat morning services have finally arrived as a regular part of our Havurah gatherings! Our “Spirit of Shabbat” service is held twice per month, with both Rabbi Simcha and Havurah members leading the way. Whether you are new to Jewish prayer and want to develop an understanding and familiarity with the service, or whether you are someone who is familiar enough with Shabbat morning services to step up and help lead the way, our time together will engage your spirit and nourish your soul!

Through traditional and contemporary melodies, song, chant, meditation, poetry and learning, we’ll experience the Spirit of Shabbat and grow our connections to each other.

These services will take place outdoors (in the yard of Havurah members), or on Zoom in the event of rain. Watch your Havurah emails for further information, locations, and links when needed.

SAFETY GUIDELINES: The Havurah is following CDC guidelines in a conservative way, looking out for the safety of all. We are currently only gathering in person when we can do so outside, and we generally require all participants to mask. When outdoor groups have ten people or less, all are fully vaccinated, social distancing is possible,  AND there is respectful  consensus of the group, participants may choose to unmask.  We are also not allowing for shared food, such as potlucks or kiddush after services, at this time.

We encourage social distancing for all people at all events.

Feel free to bring a friend; we are widening our tent and excited to welcome new Havurah members and those interested in getting to know the Havurah.

Our current COVID safety policy is to have outdoor events only, to have all masked and socially distanced. We are not yet ready for our wonderful Havurah potlucks with food-sharing, but we will serve individually packaged snacks and desserts.  (The only exception to masking policy is small events with ten people or less, outdoors, all of whom are vaccinated, and have stated consensus among the group to unmask).
