Named after the location of Temple Israel of Boston, the Riverway Project is a bold and expansive outreach initiative that seeks to connect adults in their 20's and 30's to Judaism and to Temple Israel of Boston.
Through our study and ritual experiences, the Riverway Project creates opportunities for reflection and learning. Our goal is for participants to feel comfortable and connected as they explore their Jewish selves.
Our tradition is a braided river, comprised of so many separate streams. Each of us is a tributary - representing a unique religious experience, a single current in the flowing waters of Judaism.
It is said in the Talmud that every river follows its own course. The Riverway Project strives to bring together disparate streams into a continuous flow of Jewish experience.
We welcome the participation of interfaith couples and many of our participants are from interfaith families or in interfaith relationships. Our programs are mainly conducted by Rabbi Jeremy Morrison of Temple Israel. For specific program questions, please contact his assistant, Bethie Miller.
