At this Food for Thought dinner, president of CJP Barry Shrage will reflect on his three decades of leadership. The small dinner setting will allow guests to engage with Barry and learn something interesting while enjoying a beautiful dinner with our gracious hosts. The proceeds from this fundraising event will directly support the continuing growth and development of our students.
Barry Shrage has served as president of CJP—Greater Boston’s Jewish Federation—since 1987. Under Barry’s leadership, CJP has been focused on three priorities: Jewish education and engaging future generations, strengthening our connection to Israel through community-to-community and people-to-people partnerships, and caring for the most vulnerable in Greater Boston.
Barry has been instrumental in the creation of several cutting-edge programs designed to engage the next generation in meaningful Jewish life and create a welcoming, inclusive Jewish community.
After graduating from City College of New York, Barry earned a master’s degree in social work from Boston University. He and his wife, Ellie, live in Newton, where they raised their two children. They have five grandchildren.
