"Judaism has never been solely a religion to me. It’s a people, a culture, and a religion, kind of like a state of being. It helps me locate myself in the world."
Inspiring Generations: Investing in a Sustainable Future
Our success as a community, built around shared values and cultural heritage, has established Boston Workmen’s Circle as a Center for Jewish Culture and Social Justice. For 50 years, our home has been at 1762 Beacon Street in Brookline. We love our beautiful brownstone, and the location can’t be beat. But the building is entirely without handicap access: there is no accessible entrance, no wheelchair accessible bathroom, and no elevator. Windows are drafty, and the physical plant is outdated.
Inspiring Generations calls for investing in our future - in a sustainable future - by living our values.
Social Responsibility: providing access at 1762 Beacon Street for those with mobility challenges, including a ground level entrance, an elevator, and wheelchair accessible bathrooms.
Environmental Responsibility: improving the energy efficiency of our building, with features such as new windows and insulation, as well as maximizing use of renewable materials.
Financial Responsibility: establishing an endowment to support programming for generations to come.
The vision of a building where we can live our values and an endowment to ensure a sustainable future can only be accomplished with your participation.
You may elect to make an outright gift, or make a pledge spanning up to five years. We are honored to accept planned gifts as well. We welcome you to direct your gift to support our endowment fund, to support our socially and environmentally responsible building, or to have us allocate your donation to the organization’s greatest needs.
1762 Beacon Street continues to serve as the hub and the heart of our community, even while we have accommodated growth by moving some activities off site. We want you to come to our community center often and find the comfort, warmth and infrastructure needed for the most fulfilling experience possible – whether you’re attending a lecture, a concert or a community ritual.
We invite you to get involved in a way that is meaningful and memorable for you and your family. With your help, we will build a better future for you and for generations to come.
