Community Briefing on Boston Workmen's Circle Building

Runkle School 50 Druce St, Brookline, MA 02445

Join us for a community meeting on Sunday, February 28th at 10:30 AM at the Runkle School for a briefing on the Boston Workmen's Circle building.

As you may know, the Boston Workmen's Circle building at 1762 Beacon St. is not wheelchair accessible.  The space is both underused for much of the week, and can no longer house all of our burgeoning Shule programs on Sundays and is extraordinarily expensive to maintain and make accessible.

After many years of working towards a solution to this problem, we have finally reached a resolution that we believe will lead to the long term health and sustainability of our organization.

After a thorough research process, the Boston Workmen's Circle Board is moving forward with the decision to sell our current building, and to search for a new home. This decision relies on the expertise of multiple consultants, the due-diligence of our staff and committees, and the involvement of our community members.

We envision Boston Workmen's Circle having a long-term home that is accessible to all. Our community will thrive in this place full of learning, singing, Yiddish, and inter-generational activism. 

At the community briefing on Sunday, February 28th, we will review the facts and figures that brought us to this point, discuss the timeline moving forward, and you will have the opportunity to ask questions and share feedback. 

In the meantime, more information is on our here including FAQs and personnel involved. If you have any questions or leads on a new space, please contact Michelle Weiser, our Communications & Development Manager who will ensure it gets directed by the appropriate person.
