MANCHESTER >> Havurah Keruv of Manchester is an independent, freestanding community whose foundational belief is that a healthy Judaism is a balance between ritual, learning and soul focus. We gather for monthly Shabbat services, generally the second Friday of each month, led by lay members, incorporating special holidays followed by a bountiful potluck dinner and convivial conversation. They are all-inclusive, welcome new members, embrace and respect diversity and trans-denominational common Judaism and inter-marriage.

Their next Shabbat is scheduled for Nov. 20 at 6:30 p.m. at the Maple St. School, at which time "Biblical Poetry" will be the featured reading.
