It is rare for rabbis of different denominations to work together, yet here in Boulder we do. We recognize that our communities are like aspen trees. Although on the surface each aspen appears to be its own organism, in reality each tree is linked to the collective though its roots. We are nourished by the same mayim chayim (living waters) and face many of the same gesher sar meod (challenges). The rabbis of Haver gather together to represent the collective, the larger stand of trees.

The connection, respect, and affection between the members of Haver is evident. And because that mutual respect spreads, it is not uncommon in Boulder for people to participate in events at multiple synagogues.

Mission Statement:

Haver is a coalition of rabbis who work and live in the Boulder Area. Haver’s purpose is to increase the opportunities for Jewish engagement in the Boulder Jewish community by bringing rabbis together to collaborate on learning opportunities, holiday celebrations, events, lifecycle responsibilities and programs. Haver also serves to provides collegial support and mutual enrichment among the rabbis. Haver’s members are ordained rabbis (or the equivalent as determined by Haver) in good standing who serve Boulder’s existing synagogues and Jewish institutions.
