For the Sake of the City

Our Board President, Mike Felsen, published an editorial this week discussing how the relationship between Boston's Jewish and Muslim communities could change in the wake of last week's Marathon bombings, and proposing that we in the Jewish community work to strengthen our relationships with the local Muslim community as a way for all of us to heal.

World Fellowship Weekend Coming Soon

Our annual weekend at World Fellowship Center in NH is on the horizon, and it's never too early to plan! This year's weekend is from July 5-7.

2nd Friday Shabes - CANCELLED due to snow

This month's Shabes gathering and dinner is cancelled due to the snow. Please plan on coming to the next one on March 8.

If you are interested in organizing a future shabes ceremony at WC or in your home, please contact Rosa Blumenfeld ( or Marsha Lazar (

Secular Jewish Identity and Our TuB'Shvat Seder

BWC member Leonard Fein co-authored an article this week, arguing that secular Judiasm is an authentic, vibrant, and very common way to approach Jewish life and Jewish identity. Last weekend's Tu B'Shvat seder was a wonderful example of how we find meaning in our shared identity and heritage.
