The Narberth Havurah provides open-hearted Jewish engagement for individuals on their own spiritual path and for families looking for a meaningful Jewish connection.
We are best described by our members:
I am a member of the Narberth Havurah because I wanted to experience Judaism on a more personal and spiritual level.
We finally have found a place where our entire family can comfortably learn about our faith and experience it first-hand.
We truly feel like we have found a home at the Narberth Havurah.
We are a community of seekers, learners, joyous celebrants and participants in contemporary Judaism. We offer Community Shabbat celebrations and services, holiday services and programs, Hebrew school for children, and opportunities for adults to learn – and play – together. We are an open and welcoming community composed of individuals and families of diverse Jewish and non-Jewish backgrounds. We are small in numbers but mighty in purpose.
So as to keep the intimate nature of the Havurah, we deeply engage those folks who come through our doors. Our hope is to be responsive to our members wants and needs, and to deepen their connection to Judaism and Jewish life in ways that speak to who they are and wish to become.
There are two parts of being a Narberth Havurah member:
Involvement: This Havurah is YOURS. We encourage you to become involved with the Havurah. There are plenty of opportunities to contribute your skills, or even learn new ones, on behalf of the greater community. We are small enough that we cannot rely on someone else to do the work. Because of that, each person’s contributions matter.
Dues + Contributions: We rely solely on member contributions to sustain operations and to provide our community with the practice of Judaism that members have all come to know, love and cherish. But, please do not assume that because we are a small, intimate community that we do not need funds. Simply put: it takes money to sustainably run the Havurah for this year and for years to come.
About the “Helping Hands” Pledge Level
As is true around the world, our community has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic through both the loss of precious lives and the loss of employment. Our policy at the Narberth Havurah always has been to welcome all prospective members regardless of their ability to make a financial contribution. Still, our operating costs continue to increase. We ask those members who are in a position to offer more than the recommended membership rate to do so – your Helping Hands will support those who are unable to help financially. The very basis of our community is our families – there is indeed strength in numbers. Please consider this as you select your pledge level.
The Narberth Havurah is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
Dues can be paid in full or semi-annually, with equal installments due on August 31 and on December 31, 2020. We are happy to discuss alternative arrangements on a case-by-case basis.
