>>Readers Wanted for High Holiday Observances!<<
Each year we invite all interested participants to help lead our High Holiday observances by reading a section of the program out loud. Please contact Phil Brown if you are interested in being a reader: 617-354-6138 or
Children and adults are encouraged to step forward!
The High Holiday suggested donation is an important way to help sustain the community that makes these holiday observances possible. Workmen’s Circle depends on the support we receive at the holidays each year. At the same time, we are committed to making sure that all feel welcome at our observances. You are always welcome whatever you are able to pay.
