“Chavurah” – Jewish ‘Night Out’ Gatherings bring families together for a lively discussion on various Jewish topics of relevance. At these gatherings which are held at different homes of members of the Chavurah adults discuss new books, documentaries, and classical Jewish writings while the children are entertained in a meaningful program.
