East BayKevah Groups at HaMaqom | The Place HaMaqom | The Place 2736 Bancroft Way Berkeley, CA 94704 510-845-6420 [email protected] hmqm.org Chief program officer Tamar Zaken (510) 845-6420 [email protected] A Kevah Small Group (KSG) is a micro-community with a shared affinity principle (usually based on geographic location, shared interest, demography, or life stage) that gathers once or twice a month online. Our DIY model allows each group to design a series that fits their schedule. After a host creates a group and chooses a topic and location — often in consultation with our staff, HaMaqom | The Place matches that group with an outstanding educator who creates a tailored curriculum. Also provide each group with a Kevah Small Group email address, which serves as a virtual home where members can message one another between sessions, receive reminders, and arrange other details. Kevah means a “set practice,” and for 10 years Kevah operated as an independent 501(c)3 organization, aiding individuals and organizations to make time in their lives to build Jewish learning communities. HaMaqom | The Place acquired Kevah in 2018. If you are interested in creating a Kevah Small Group, contact Tamar Zaken, Chief Program Officer of HaMaqom | The Place.
