Get involved

 

Hevreh is all about you. At our core, Hevreh values the contributions that every member makes to our community.

 

At Hevreh, we have so many ways to get involved, and we need your help. We need your gifts, talents, and passions to continue to make Hevreh a destination for Jewish life. We all do our part to make Hevreh a real hevreh–Hebrew for community.

 

Are you a musician? Several congregants take part in the musical aspects of our services. Do you have a passion for mindfulness? Join our weekly yoga classes. Do you love to learn or teach? Engage with others through our lifelong learning series or discussions communities. These are just a few of the many ways to get involved.

 

Hevreh is all about you, and we’re all about community. So come by. We’d love to see you here.

CHRISTMAS DINNER RAFFLE

Each year, Hevreh provides a full Christmas dinner to 18 lucky winners. We gather at Hevreh, fill the bags with fixings and then Hevreh “elves” deliver them to families. After Thanksgiving, please consider donating frozen turkeys, canned vegetables, canned yams or potatoes, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce or fresh pies. Monetary donations are also accepted.

QUIGONG CLASS WITH WILL BOYCE, M.ED

Qigong is an ancient Chinese set of practices designed to bring enhanced feelings of serenity, well being and energy. Qigong involves the use of gentle healing movements, breath practices, self massage and relaxation. It is easy to learn and supports health maintenance, endurance and longevity. And best of all, these are strategies that a person can implement themselves to support their own healing process. Will has been teaching Qigong for the last 20 years. He ran the largest Qigong program in the USA for the inpatient treatment of addictions recovery.

PEER-LED MUSSAR GROUP

DECEMBER 2, 16 | JANUARY 6, 20 | FEBRUARY 3, 17

Broadly speaking Mussar is the study, discussion, and practice of various character (or “soul”) traits from a Jewish perspective. While there are over one hundred of such traits, typical ones include Humility, Gratitude, Compassion, Patience, and Silence.

Hevreh is starting a lay-led Mussar group, which will meet every other week on Mondays. We will usually plan on meeting from 11:00-12:30, but check the weekly email, This Week at Hevreh, for confirmation of dates and times. This group is open to all, so please come and join us. A Zoom (teleconferencing) option will be available for those who cannot attend in person if you let us know in advance. Our first meeting in November is currently scheduled for Monday, November 4 at 1:00 (note this one time change in time). Please feel free to join us.

Social Justice

 

Hevreh is a community of faith and conscience. We are a spiritual community, and for many of us, we express that spirituality through action in the broader community. Directed by the values of chesed (loving-kindness) and tzedek (justice), Hevreh is a community with social action and social justice at our core.

 

Members of our community prepare a monthly meal for the Breaking Bread Kitchen, we volunteer regularly at our People’s Pantry, and we hold regular blood drives. Hevreh is a member of the Four Freedoms Coalition and our community is also a Brit Olam Congregation. In 2017 we took part in the Religious Action Center’s Urgency of Now Campaign.

 

For some, volunteerism, community service, social action, and social justice are ways to engage in community and with one’s own spiritual life. We’d love to include you in all that’s going on. Please be in touch with Rabbi Hirsch for more information.
