We also have a vibrant Havurah that generally meets for Shabbat morning services twice per month, starting at 9:15 AM. Havurah services are lay-led and volunteer-run, forming another outlet for our community to come together to daven (pray) and learn.

Backyard Davenning
Several times during the summer we meet for cool drinks and light snacks in CSAIR's backyard. Then we welcome Shabbat with songs, spirited davening, and stories for children and adults.

Friday Night Ruach Shabbat Dinners
During our Friday night Ruach Shabbat Dinners, we celebrate Shabbat together, meet other CSAIR members and learn ways to enrich our home rituals. Ruach Shabbat Dinners are scheduled once per month and are often led by one or two Hebrew School classes. Each dinner features parallel activities – adults will study with our clergy while children participate in creative learning and games with our Educational Director. Ruach Shabbat Dinners are open to all CSAIR families – regardless of where

Havurah

The CSAIR Havurah is an ongoing, self-directed prayer group which meets twice each month to worship and study together. Participants are welcomed to lead prayers, to read Torah and Haftorah, and deliver remarks or d'vrai torah. The discussions often focus on issues raised by the weekly Torah reading, contemporary topics, and other thoughts of Havurah members.

The Havurah offers a comfortable, non-intimidating setting for developing synagogue skills in a supportive environment.

About once a month, Havurah members join for communal meals at either the synagogue or a pot-luck vegetarian Shabbat lunch at a member's home. They also hold a Sukkot meal and a lunch on the 7th day of Passover.

In strengthening their relationship with the synagogue, the Havurah sponsors several synagogue-wide events during the year, including the annual Tu B'Shevat Seder, refreshments after the Purim megillah reading, and the all-night study session on Shavuot (with plenty of cheesecake).

If you would like to be added to the Havurah email list for a list of service dates and other events, please contact our Havurah Coordinators at havurah@csair.org.
