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 celebrations at the Charles River Garage (165 Cambridge St., 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.
