About Us

In The Beginning . . . .

 

Congregation Havurah Shalom was founded in 1996 when the first Jewish residents of Sun City felt the need to come together to share their religious and cultural heritage.

The Havurah met for Shabbat services in private homes until our increasing numbers made it necessary to seek larger spaces. The Sun City Community Association graciously provided us with space for our gatherings as we expanded our Shabbat services to twice monthly, added worship on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, and celebrated Passover and Hanukkah.  As we and Sun City continued to grow and expand, so did our need for added space.  Today our services and religious events take place in Sun City as well as in several Georgetown facilities.

Congregation Havurah Shalom became a legal non-profit 501C3 organization in 2001 as we defined our Articles of Organization and established officers and a Board of Directors. The original articles were transformed into a Constitution and Bylaws. We are now Congregation Havurah Shalom of Sun City Texas, also known as CHS. Our Board meets monthly and we elect our Board Officers with an annual election and announce the results at our annual meeting.
