JewishBoston.com is, well, a website for Jews in Boston. Here you can find an immediate connection to all the amazing Jewish things that are happening in Boston right now. Discover links to cultural events (music, dance, film, lectures, cooking classes), Jewish education (courses, lectures, trips), organizations (synagogues, community centers, professional networking) and lots more.
Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) created the world of JewishBoston.com so that, finally, there is an easy-to-find, vibrant online place to connect Jews, especially young Jews, with one another and the community at large. No more endless searching for ways to experience Jewish life. JewishBoston.com is a natural extension of CJP and was born out of the realization that a new way of thinking was needed to bring the community together. You can read more about CJP and our strategic plan at cjp.org/Our-Strategic-Plan.aspx.
So now that JewishBoston.com is available, it's your turn. You make the site better every time you use it, comment on it, share it with friends. It belongs to you. Discover the richness of Jewish life in Boston. The wandering is over.
And a special thanks to...
JewishBoston.com could not have been launched without the many individuals who spent many hours helping us understand how best to build this resource. A special thanks goes out to all the folks who participated in our community input sessions and to the community professionals and organizations who are our true partners in this effort.
In Boston and at CJP, we're fortunate to have incredibly talented volunteers. JewishBoston.com was the beneficiary of excellent and insightful guidance by the JewishBoston Working Group: Steffan Berelowitz (co-chair), Jarrett Goetz (co-chair), Josh Fialkoff, Neal Karasic, Daniella Priebatsch, Scott Roth and Pito Salas. We're grateful as well to our seriously sharp consultants, Donna Tramontozzi and Michelle Chambers of W Street Associates, and to our wizardly software developers at Cantina Consulting.
