Celebrate with us! Hebrew College and Temple Reyim invite you to join us online to celebrate breaking ground for Hebrew College’s new home on a new shared campus in Newton.

Groundbreaking Ceremony: 3-4 p.m. (live-streamed)

Hebrew College and Temple Reyim are excited to collaborate with several organizational partners and neighbors on a new shared campus, creating a vibrant hub for Jewish learning and life in the Auburndale neighborhood of Newton. Hebrew College will relocate to its new home in December 2022.

The vision for the collaborative builds on the strength of existing relationships with organizations that are currently located at Temple Reyim’s campus, including Mayyim Hayyim Living Waters Community Mikveh and Education Center, Kesher Newton Jewish Afterschool Program and Zamir Chorale of Boston. Hebrew College will bring several other dynamic pluralistic Boston-based Jewish organizations to the shared campus, including Jewish Arts Collaborative (JArts), Jewish Women’s Archive, Keshet and Massachusetts Board of Rabbis, to create an interdisciplinary hub of Jewish learning, spirituality and innovation.

Hanukkah Experience: 4:15-5 p.m. (in-person)

Following the groundbreaking ceremony, please join us outside Temple Reyim to experience the Jewish Arts Collaborative’s 2021 mobile art installation, “Brighter Revealed.” We are excited to celebrate our new campus, our shared campus partnerships (including JArts) and to deepen our partnership with JArts with this Hanukkah community experience.

Tour Mayyim Hayyim Community Mikveh  (4:30 p.m.)

Tours of new campus partner Mayyim Hayyim Living Waters Community Mikveh and Education Center will be available to see the mikveh, education center and art gallery; learn how and why people immerse to celebrate moments of joy, heal after times of sorrow or illness, or to commemorate transitions and changes. Vaccination verification and masks required.

Mayyim Hayyim makes mikveh accessible and meaningful for the full diversity of Jewish tradition. A busy center of community life, Mayyim Hayyim provides 1,600 immersions and over 110 education programs every year, art exhibits in its gallery, national consultation services and meaningful volunteer opportunities and training. Tour, learn and plan an immersion.
