Beginning this month, Rabbi Marc Baker, CJP’s first new president and CEO in more than three decades, will tour Greater Boston with one goal: to listen.
In fact, Marc predicts he’ll listen to a thousand people—or more—in the Jewish community as he embarks on a year-long project called “The 360Five.” The CJP-sponsored initiative will focus on five questions and draw from a 360-view of the Jewish community—young adults, “less young” adults, religiously observant, decidedly secular, the Russian-speaking community, Jewish day school alum, the completely unaffiliated with anything Jewish but still “culturally Jewish” Jews, Boston’s Israeli community and more.
The goal will be to build more connected Jewish community and to strengthen Jewish life. Sounds easy, right?
Marc explains how, when and why he’s hitting the road and how you can get involved in a Jewish communal conversation unlike any we’ve had before.
