Group Description

The Yellow Springs Havurah is an inclusive, eclectic, independent community organization providing spiritual, religious, cultural, social and educational connections for the Jewish community of Yellow Springs, Ohio. The Havurah organizes Shabbat and holiday services. Affiliated groups and activities include a men's group, a Rosh Hodesh group for women, and other programs, activities and classes for adults and children.

The purpose of the Yellows Springs Havurah is to:

• Provide a place of worship for its members and to conduct the worship according to the customs and practices of Judaism
• Provide for religious instruction
• Conduct religious, cultural and social functions
• Promote the aims of Judaism and the interests of the Havurah receive, hold, invest and disburse gifts, bequests and funds arising from all sources

Shabbat Services

The Y.S. Havurah conducts Shabbat morning services the first and third Saturday morning of every month. These services are lay-led, using a prayer book created by the members. This takes place at Rockford Chapel, President Street, Yellow Springs Ohio, The Friends Meeting House on the campus of Antioch College. Services start at 10 a.m., run about two hours, and are followed by a vegetarian potluck lunch. Services are open to members and non-members.

Holiday Services and Events

Every year, services are held or facilitated for Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Purim, and Simchat Torah, as well as an annual Chanukah Party. Due to the shifting Jewish Calendar, these services are not always held at the Rockford Chapel. Be sure to consult the events calendar to see when and where services or events will be held.

Membership
Once again, all services are open to members and non-members. Annual membership dues to the Havurah are $36 a year and help cover the costs of running the services and a small amount of administrative expenses. Our Annual Meeting is held each year on the second Sunday in October.
