“My task is not to debate whether I’m a Jew or not, but to figure out what kind of Jew I am. For me, finding a secular Jewish community with progressive politics fits my version of that identity.”

The High Holiday suggested donation is an important way to help sustain the community that makes these holiday observances possible. Boston 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.
Tickets can be purchased at the door, but pre-registration is strongly encouraged to help you avoid the rush. You may register online, by calling the office with your credit card information, or by mailing a check to the office.
