Adat Chaverim - "Community of Friends"

Adat Chaverim–a transliteration of the Hebrew phrase “community of friends”–is the first Reform congregation in Collin County, Texas, serving Plano, Frisco, McKinney, Allen, and the other suburbs north and east of Dallas.

Founded in early 1997, Adat Chaverim is a rapidly growing congregation, with a varied membership ranging from singles to young families to senior members of our community. We welcome interfaith couples and families. Our size provides an intimacy in worship and social activities that is unavailable in larger congregations, as well as immediate opportunities to become involved with the congregation and its leadership at all levels.

Our Mission

We at Adat Chaverim, a Reform Jewish Congregation and a “community of friends” are dedicated to:

  • Living by the enduring principles of Torah and Reform Judaism,
  • Developing relationships with God through education, study and communal worship,
  • Supporting individuals and families in their diversity to ensure the continuity of the Jewish People,
  • Caring for each other, our North Texas community and the State of Israel, and
  • Furthering tikkun olam, the healing of the world.

Educational Program

Adat Chaverim’s Religious School, led by Director Valerie Hoffman Klein with the support of many talented teachers and parent volunteers, provides a complete Judaic education program for children from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. In addition to preparing children for their bar/bat mitzvah, our school prepares our students for life as a Jew. For older students in 9th through 12th grade we have B’nai Torah. This is our high school program which covers more advanced topics, such as Jewish Morals and Values, Judaism and the World’s Religions, and the Holocaust. All classes meet at the synagogue.

As a beit midrash–a house of study–our education program does not end with children. Adat Chaverim also has an ever-expanding continuing education program, including Torah study, adult Hebrew classes, a speaker’s series, informal classes, and a video discussion group.
