Local Jewish Resources

We are part of a larger network of Jewish organizations and services that serve the Central Massachusetts region. These are resources that may be helpful to you, and organizations that we encourage our members to support, whether through monetary donations, or by volunteering your time.

At the largest Jewish gathering in North America, 5,000 attendees will come together to worship, learn, sing, build community, and shape the future of the Reform Movement. Get recharged with learning sessions, networking opportunities, plenaries, worship, and entertainment — all tailored to inspire and empower lay leaders, clergy, and synagogue professionals.

More than 140 sessions designed to provide congregational leaders with tools to enhance their effectiveness, and to highlight innovations in Jewish spiritual life. Presenters include experts in academia, the private sector, Reform Movement institutions, and congregations, offering sessions across five intensive tracks: Strengthening Congregations, Tikkun Olam, Audacious Hospitality, Youth Engagement, and Transforming Texts (in partnership with HUC-JIR).

Jewish Federation of Central Massachusetts – the Federation that extends from Worcester to Westborough. The Jewish Federation is our largest source of support for our Religious school program. They support many local needs, such as Rachel’s Table (feeding the hungry), and enrich the local Jewish community through cultural and arts programming, groups for interfaith families and the very popular ‘Young Adult Division’. We encourage our members to make an annual donation to support our local Federation.
