“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.”
Projects & Workshops
When the economic crisis hit in 2008, young adults gathered for a series of living room conversations. We talked about how the economic crisis was affecting us, and we talked about how we want to respond to it as a community. Since then, we have worked to build Boston Workmen's Circle as a radical mutual aid society for today – a place where we can help each other to live more sustainable, communal, and thoughtful lives.
