Named after the location of Temple Israel of Boston, the Riverway Project is a bold, exciting initiative that connects adults in their 20s and 30s to each other, to Judaism and to Temple Israel of Boston.

Through our study and ritual experiences, the Riverway Project creates opportunities for reflection and learning. Our goal is for participants to feel comfortable and connected as they explore their Jewish selves.

We celebrate our rich diversity as a community. Our participants are individuals, couples and families of all configurations and races, people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, Jews by birth and by choice, as well as people from many other faith backgrounds.

Our tradition is a braided river, comprising many separate streams. Each of us is a tributary representing a unique religious experience, a single current in the flowing waters of Judaism.

It is said in the Talmud that every river follows its own course. The Riverway Project strives to bring together disparate streams into a continuous flow of Jewish experience.
