Social Justice

A core expression of our Jewish identity at the Boston Workmen’s Circle Center for Jewish Culture and Social Justice is the pursuit of a besere velt — a better world. We weave that commitment into every layer of the community, including our holiday rituals, arts and culture programming, and our children’s Sunday School.

We act together, mobilizing around social justice issues that speak to our identity as Jews and as activists. Our social justice committees lead the way. New members are always welcome!

 

MIDDLE EAST WORKING GROUP
