We are pleased to invite you to the Lifesavers Speaker Series: Helping the Homeless, presented by the Vilna Shul, Boston’s Center for Jewish Culture, and CJP.

Dr. James O’Connell, founder of Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program, will share his experience working with the city’s unhoused population for 30 years. Hear his first-hand stories, insights on access to healthcare in the 21st century, and thoughts on the state of homelessness in Boston today.

We will gratefully accept donations of new winter clothing, including hats, gloves, and socks for Boston Health Care for the Homeless at this event.

Dr. O’Connell’s book will be for sale after the event, and he will be signing copies.

A complimentary guided tour of the Vilna and its history will run approximately 45 minutes before the start of the program.
