A Bisl: Member to Member Learning Exchange

What is A Bisl? In Yiddish, it means “a little bit.” For Boston Workers Circle members, it means a chance to learn and share a little bit about a topic that excites you

 

In this time of isolated virtual reality, we're hearing from members that folks want places to connect. So, in collaboration with the Adult Education Committee, BWC is opening up this virtual member to member learning exchange series, A Bisl.

 

These member offerings will take place over Zoom, almost every Monday at 8:30pm EST and Saturday at 2:00pm EST. The line-up below will be updated regularly so check back for new topics.
