Havurah (noun, Hebrew: chah-voo-rah), a small fellowship or group who assemble for prayer,  communal experiences, and shared learning.

Havurah of Addison County is an inclusive, non-denominational Jewish community serving Vermont towns between Burlington and Rutland.
We are a volunteer-driven and lay-led congregation seeking to create unique Jewish experiences for a community with a rich diversity of backgrounds. Our membership is comprised of individuals and families from all walks and stages of life including interfaith and LGBTQ+ communities.
Our Hebrew School meets on Monday afternoons from September to May and is comprised of students ages 7 to 13+. We also have a Post B’nei Mitzvah Program. Our school engages students with a range of approaches from experiential learning, to text study, Hebrew Language instruction to creative projects, music, movements and the arts. 
At Havurah you’ll find an array of ritual offerings, holiday celebrations, social gatherings and programs designed to meet people where they are on their Jewish journey.

What is PJ Our Way?



PJ Our Way offers the gift of exceptional books with Jewish themes to kids ages 8½-11 – books that they choose themselves!
Monthly Choice

Every month, from the 1st – 10th, kids visit this website to choose a book from a selection of four high-quality titles that have been reviewed by a panel of PJ educators, parents, and kids. That's 12 free books a year! To make the choice easier, every title offered comes with a synopsis and author bios, ratings and reviews, and video trailers. Kids can also take polls and quizzes, participate in monthly interviews and challenges, and comment on blog posts.
Parent Input

On the Parent Blog, parents are invited to read about each book and find suggestions for family conversations. These blog posts give parents tools to help children make book choices that are appropriate for them.
A Safe Website

The PJ Our Way website is a safe place where kids can choose books, write reviews, and share ideas with others from around the country. All content on the website is moderated by PJ educators.
Design Team

Every fall, members of PJ Our Way may apply to be part of our national Design Team. Design Team members have early access to PJ Our Way books and create videos and reviews for the website. To become more involved with writing reviews and blogs, connect with us at [email protected]
