Havurah comes from the Hebrew word "haver" which means "friend." Havurah usually describes a community of friends who gather together to discuss their common interests and concerns. Jewish believers in Jesus face unique challenges and questions and this publication is one way of addressing them.

Each year 30,000–40,000 Israelis travel the world as a rite of passage. Many are uniquely open to considering the Messianic claims of Jesus.
Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him; he has put him to grief; when his soul makes an offering for guilt, he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days; the will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand. Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied; by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant, make many to be accounted righteous, and he shall bear their iniquities. (Isaiah 53:10-11)
