Young Adults

The Boston Worker's Circle Young Adult Community brings together people in their 20's and 30's to build meaningful friendships, create rituals that speak to us and our values, take action, and host community-wide events.
We have fun together while figuring out what our Judaism, our activism, and our cultural inheritances mean to us. We are students, organizers, artists, cultural workers, professionals, creators, teachers, librarians, rabbis, nerds, musicians, performers, clowns, and general dreamers & schemers.

A Young People at BWC event!

We've heard about the Boston neighborhoods our parents and their friends lived in that used to be Jewish- "this corner store used to be a kosher deli, this church once was a synagogue." what happened to those neighborhoods? Why did the Jews leave?  What can we learn about the story of their departure in context of the current rapid gentrification of Boston?
