Chavarem is one of the three auxiliary arms of ICCJ. Its name is the Hebrew word for "Friends." Each year we provide an array of social activities designed to strengthen our bonds with our fellow congregants. Our programs, as well as membership in Chaverim, are open to all, so please come and be part of the fun.

First year Chaverim membership is free to all new members.

We hope you have attended one or more of our many functions over the years.

• Attend our popular Film and Lecture Series?
• Cheer for the Mets on Jewish Heritage Day at Shea Stadium?
• Find yourself singing and dancing during our Karaoke Night?
• Share the laughter at our professional Comedy Cabaret?

Watch this webpage for news on upcoming activities and plan to be part of the fun. Please also support us as a member! Dues are still just $10 per person and we would greatly appreciate your financial support.
