The Brookline Havurah Minyan is an egalitarian Jewish, creative, member-led worship community based in the Brookline and Newton, Massachusetts area. We have gathered since 1980 to celebrate Shabbat, holidays, life cycle events, and special communal activities. We place a strong emphasis on community.
As a volunteer-run group, members organize and lead all aspects of services and other events throughout the year. A volunteer va’ad assures continuity in the group’s affairs. We meet in members homes for Shabbat and in rented space for the High Holidays and special occasions.
Our Torah mantle was created by members of the minyan. Each leaf on the Eytz Chayim was made from a fabric of particular significance in the life of that minyan member.
