Quick Reference

(cf. Heb. , ‘friend’). In Jewish practice a group of friends formed for religious purposes. They often shared a common weekly meal, usually on the eves of sabbaths or holy days. It has been argued that Christ and His disciples formed such a chaburah and that the Last Supper was a chaburah meal.
