Congregation Havurim offers services led by both students at local rabbinical schools and lay-leaders trained in Reform Jewish services.
For 2019-2020, Congregation Havurim is happy to welcome Miriam Hoffman as our Student Rabbi!
Miriam Hoffman currently attends her second year at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Los Angeles, CA, having spent her first year of rabbinical school in Jerusalem. Previously, she attended the University of Arizona, with a focus on Family Studies and Human Development. She has also worked as an Avodah Jewish Social Justice Corps member in New York’s Lower East Side – learning about the causes and effects of poverty.
Miriam grew up in Orange County, CA, and is excited to spend this year with Congregation Havurim, growing and learning together!
Please join us for services with the student Rabbi on the second Friday of each month starting in Fall 2019!
