Our Programs

Adult Study:

Adult Study has been the heart and soul of the Chavurah, founded in 1972. We attract adults who enjoy learning and wish

to deepen their knowledge of all things Jewish.

Adult study takes place in members’ homes on scheduled Shabbat mornings throughout the year. The sessions begin at 9:30 am with a buffet breakfast and time to socialize.

Rabbi Golub leads dynamic and enlightening presentations that provide an adult understanding of Judaism, often through the study of Midrash and rabbinic texts.

These sessions offer a rare opportunity for thought-provoking discussions related to relevant social issues, personal Jewish identity and the challenges facing the State of Israel

All are always welcome. Consider joining us any Saturday morning. Check for date, times and locations by emailing us at:

Chavurah services

High Holy Day Services:

High Holy Day Services: Each year our Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur Services at Westhill High School, 125 Roxbury Road in Stamford, attract individuals from all over the greater Fairfield County area.

There is no charge to attend High Holy Day services; you do not need tickets or reservations. For Rosh Hashanah we do ask that you bring a donation of non -­ perishable food for our annual food drive to benefit the local food bank.

Ample seating and parking are available for all services, whether at the JCC or Westhill High School.


Chavurat Aytz Chayim offers a special opportunity to join a caring community of diverse families and individuals who share a positive sense of Jewish identity and meaning in their daily lives.

What relevance do tradition and scholarly commentary on the Torah have for us as we ponder questions of personal identity and responsibility in a complex, secular world ? These might include such issues as racial profiling, feminism, gay marriage, abortion, stem cell research, or the BDS (Boycott, Divest, and Sanction) Movement and its vilifying of Israel.

Include yourself in the discussion of these important topics by becoming a Chavurah member.
