The word chavurah comes from the word chaver, meaning friend. A chavurah is a small group of individuals who gather together for a variety of reasons: to socialize, celebrate Jewish holidays, learn more about Judaism, and participate in social action projects. You and the other members of your Chavurah determine the activities, which may include both family activities and adult get-togethers. Events enjoyed by different Chavurot have included picnics, museum outings, sporting events, holiday celebrations, potlucks, exploring new restaurants, game nights, Shabbat services and hikes, among many others.
Through our Chavurah Program, CNT offers members another opportunity to get to know, and develop relationships with, other families within our congregation. As part of a Chavurah, you will get together with other CNT members in a small group setting. While having fun at social events and holiday celebrations, you will strengthen your connection to the CNT community and make lasting friendships. Particularly in today's world, our members find forming these meaningful connections to be of great value. We encourage all of our members to join a Chavurah.Most importantly, a chavurah provides an opportunity for you to meet others who share your values and interests.
