Upcoming & Ongoing Programs


Upcoming Event:

SHAVUOT MAY 25, 2023

Join Haver, the Rabbinic Council of Boulder, as we celebrate Shavuot, a holiday commemorating receiving the Torah at Mt. Sinai.

Each year, Haver rabbis carefully curate a theme that speaks to contemporary concerns while rooted in our rich history of Torah. This year’s theme is

צדק וּמשׁפט מכוֹן כסאוֹ / Foundations of Righteousness, Justice & Law.

All of the sessions as well as two panels – one rabbinic the other comprised of community activists – draw from this theme to create enriching learning experiences.

The program begins Thursday evening with music and prayer followed by the discussion panels and learning sessions with a pause for cheesecake, and culminating in midnight meditation (held at Jewish midnight*).

This enriching program sponsored by Haver is free and open to everyone.
