(See bios below)
Our panel of local leaders will guide a discussion of the 2015 Greater Boston Jewish Community Study. Conducted every 10 years, the study provides us with critical information about our community and is an essential resource for everyone who cares about its future. If you have not yet had a chance to read our Overview, which highlights the most important results of the study, we strongly encourage you to do so.
Following the community study discussion, the second half of the evening will be a facilitated session seeking your valuable input for CJP’s strategic planning process, including what you see as the greatest challenges or opportunities facing the community in the years ahead. Your insights are critically important as we plan for the future and build a strong community for generations to come.
