Come together as a community rooted in a Jewish commitment to social justice for a program of readings, reflection, and singing.  Whatever your upbringing – whatever your level of Jewish knowledge – however you might define your own spirituality – we invite you to join us!

Readers wanted for High Holiday Services!

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. 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.
Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. Walk-ins will only be available if we have enough open seats. You may register online by clicking here, by calling the office with your credit card information, or by mailing a check to the office.
