Jewish-Muslim Relations Committee
With the marathon bombings, tensions have resurfaced, fueled in part by some troubling voices within Boston’s Jewish community. Be a part of planning our response and reaching out to local Muslim leaders.

MidEast Working Group
The struggles and potential solutions aren’t getting any easier, and BWC will continue to grapple with how we can be an effective Jewish voice on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.

Acting for Economic Justice
Local union solidarity, immigration reform, a national campaign to win rights for domestic workers – these are some of the issues tha the committee will be considering for its focus next fall.

Adult Education Committee
What courses should we offer next fall and spring? One idea is a fall course on Jewish multi-culturalism as a companion to a planned concert featuring the BWC chorus in collaboration with a Ladino band.

A Besere Velt
BWC’s Yiddish Community Chorus has launched an exciting musical collaboration with a professional Ladino band. Membership is open this spring for anyone interested in signging in the big concert next December.

Yiddish Committee
Plan the 2013-14 season of lectures, concerts, and classes.

Green Building/Sustainability Committee (still to be named)
Introduced at this year’s Annual Members Meeting, this new committee will help BWC become a model for living our values.

Capital Campaign Committee
With BWC’s capital campaign, we aim to make a pivotal investment in our future. We have an additional $1.4 million to raise over the next two years. Join the team!

Finance Committee
Not allergic to numbers and dollar signs? Enjoy working with budgets and spreadsheets? We want you!

Personnel Committee
If you’ve got experience as a supervisor or in nonprofit management, you can help us make sure BWC has responsible and sustainable personnel practices.
