Changing Systems, Changing Ourselves: Anti-Racist Practice for Sanctuary, Accompaniment & Resistance
Begins May 1, 2018

Do you want to join a community of people of faith and conscience committed to taking action as well as practicing reflection? Are you seeking ways to offer grounded solidarity that don't reproduce oppressive practices? Have you ever gone to an immigration (ICE) check-in or court to support a person at risk of deportation? Is your congregation part of the New Sanctuary Movement, or talking about joining?

Join a four-session monthly online course that explores these ideas and more.

Rededication to Resiliency: Community Holocaust Commemoration of Yom Hashoah
June 10, 2018

This past summer in two separate acts of vandalism, ominously reminiscent of Kristallnacht almost 80 years ago, two of the iconic glass panels of the New England Holocaust Memorial were shattered. We will rededicate the now fully restored New England Holocaust Memorial in a symbolic gesture of our resilience and perseverance.

The commemoration will feature Rabbi Alan Turetz, a second-generation Holocaust survivor of Temple Emeth in Chestnut Hill, survivor testimony from Esther Adler, and the winners of the 12th annual Israel Arbeiter Essay Contest. Please register for the event here.
