Help us find our next Executive Director

 
I have been involved in Boston Workers Circle since before my children, now seven and ten years old, were born. I have played many roles, worn many hats, and learned a lot about the ins and outs of leading and participating in a large member-led organization. Now, I am excited to wear the hat of a Search Committee member.
 
I am so thrilled to be involved in the search for our new Executive Director and to be helping BWC in this next phase of growth and leadership. 
 
And we need your help! Who do you know that might be our next leader? You? A friend of a friend? A distant cousin? Send them our way!
 
We are looking for someone grounded in Jewish values and social justice. We are looking for vision, someone who can move us forward at this moment. One of the things that I am most excited about is finding someone who can really leverage our power to speak up for justice both within the Boston Jewish community and nationally.
 
Help us find our next Executive Director, help us use our voice, and help us move into our next generation of activism.
 
In solidarity,
 
Rachel Hess
Member of the Search Committee & Long-time BWC Member
