June is Membership Month!

June is membership month at BWC, when we all recommit ourselves to this community and what we stand for. This year, we begin membership month amidst a broken world. As BWC members, we approach this brokenness together, rooted in our values, partnerships, and dreams for a besere velt, a better world.

Staying in touch during the COVID-19 crisis

As a Jewish community working for social justice, we come from a long lineage of Jews who have adapted to the shifting terrain of oppression around them and have found ways to be resilient.

Building community from home

We are closing the BWC building until April 1st (and possibly longer), and all BWC programs, meetings, classes and gatherings during that time - on & off site, of any size - will either meet virtually or be postponed. 

Keeping our community healthy, calm & connected (virtually)

We are centering our commitment to take care of ourselves and each other, and are working hard to meet the diverse needs of our community, from preschoolers to octogenarians. Read more for event & protocol changes in response to COVID-19.
