Join us for Kabbalat Shabbat services and for Shabbat morning services. A kiddush talk will follow the service.

We will be discussing “Be the Change.” It is an art and activism initiative that is inspired by the Jewish tenet of justice and drawing from the ritualistic Jewish tzedakah box. ”Be the Change” is about making space to talk about injustice and to give us all action steps to be agents of change in our local and global communities.

This year, you can view the art along the Fenway from Aug. 2 to Oct. 26. TBZ will welcome “Be the Change” global ambassador co-chairs Rabbi Menachem Creditor, the Pearl and Ira Meyer Scholar-in-Residence at UJA-Federation New York and founder of Rabbis Against Gun Violence, and Ruth Messinger, former president and CEO of American Jewish World Service. They will participate in services on Friday night and will lead a kiddush talk after Shabbat morning services.
