When my husband read an early draft of this essay, he asked, "Why doesn't her partner have to support our daughter? After all, they agreed to raise children as Jews." What does it mean to raise a Jewish child?
A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
You are invited to the Vilna Shul for a very special women's only event! After the great success of our Challah Baking Workshop here's a new adventure just in time for the holiday.
With Pesach around the corner, the Boston Jewish Women's Circle will be gathering at the Shul to explore the many meanings of the traditional Seder Plate. Everyone will receive a ceramic plate to decorate in their own tradition - a keepsake that will last generations.
So bring your mothers, daughters (12+), grandmothers and girlfriends to the historic Vilna Shul!
A donation of $20 is requested for this event. College students with limited funds are encouraged to conact email@example.com if assistance is needed. We want the event to be open and accessible to everyone.
The Vilna Shul is easily accessible by public transportation. We are just a 4 minute walk from the MBTA Redline Charles/MGH stop and a 8 minute walk from the Green Line Government Center Stop. We highly encourage using public transportation when visiting the Shul.
The Vilna Shul offers $5 validated parking after 4pm on weekdays and on Sundays. Validation is only good inside the Charles River Plaza Parking Garage across the street from the Shul and next to the Au Bon Pain and Holiday Inn, not in the surface lot in front of the Whole Foods. Look for the garage entrance near the intersection of Cambridge St. and Blossom St.
You must validate your green ticket at the Shul for free/reduced parking.
