In Judaism, the concept of tikkun olam is prevalent in Torah and our culture. Healing the world takes on different forms for different Jews, and here at Havurah on the Hill we welcome all the different forms tikkun olam might take.

This November, we welcome Jonathan Rosenblum to Havurah on the Hill. Rosenblum is a union and community organizer with 33 years of leadership in successful labor community campaigns. He is the author of Beyond $15: Immigrant Workers, Faith Activists, and the Revival of the Labor Movement,” published by Beacon Press in March 2017.

Join us at HOH for Shabbat services, dinner, and to hear about Jonathan Rosenblum’s form of tikkun olam, his new book, and activism.

About Us:
Havurah on the Hill is a non-denominational, egalitarian minyan for jews in their 20s and 30s in the Boston area. HOH meets at the Vilna Shul in Beacon Hill, one of the last remaining synagogues from the early 20th century wave of Jewish immigration and hosts monthly Kabbalat Shabbat Services as well as other special holiday celebrations throughout the year.

Getting to the Vilna Shul:
Free validated parking is always available for Havurah on the Hill’s monthly Shabbat celebrations at the Charles River Garage (165 Cambridge Street, Boston). Please note that this is NOT the above-ground Whole Foods lot, but the parking garage between the Whole Foods lot and the Au Bon Pain. Please bring your green ticket into the Vilna for a validation stamp. The Vilna Shul is also easily accessible by public transportation. Take the MBTA Red Line to Charles/MGH.
