Let Us Not become a Movement

By Lainie Bergman

Eugene Borowitz, September 7, 1979

The author places havurot in the context of a changing American Jewish experience. Young Jews are more mobile, and less inclined to marry and reproduce at the rate their parents did; havurot accommodate their needs in a way that synagogues cannot.
