TKE Chavurot

What makes TKE so special to so many of us is opportunities for friendships.  And one truly wonderful way to enjoy the fun and warmth of these friendships is being part of a small group of like-minded people --- your friends.  So TKE has and is expanding its support of small groups of like-minded TKE members, which we refer to as “chavurah.”

What is a chavurah?  A chavurah is a small group of like-minded Jews who assemble for the purposes of facilitating Shabbat and holiday prayer services, sharing communal experiences such as lifecycle events, or Jewish learning. Of course, we also want it to be social and fun!!

WRJ: Women of Reform JudaismThis is the sisterhood group at TKE.  Activities range from assisting with events to fundraising to special holiday events.
