haverimChavurah, which means “friends” in Hebrew, is a lay-led discussion group that meets once a month after the Saturday morning service.. We read that week’s parashah in its entirety and engage in an open discussion of its meaning, in its time, and today. Before our Torah study, at the kiddush we share a potluck pareve lunch. You are welcome to bring a dish to share with the group, but don’t be deterred if you cannot, or decide to drop in at the last minute. There is always enough food to go around.


The Yivo Jewish Culture Series programs focus on Yiddish literature, culture, history, language and Jewish heritage. They are presented several times across the course of the year on Sunday afternoons at 2PM and take place in Riverdale Temple’s sanctuary. Their speakers and subject matter experts draw a large audience for this popular event.

The faculty for the series draws on the extensive network of scholars affiliated with the YIVO Institute. The events are open to the broader community. View the Yivo Jewish Culture Series here.
