Mission Statement

Jewish InterAction merged with GesherCity Boston in 2006. Please see our updated profile and webpage (www.geshercity.org) for events and to volunteer. We provide an avenue for people in their 20s and early 30s to get involved in the Jewish community. We offer diverse programming in social justice, Jewish learning, personal enrichment, and recreation. Jewish InterAction is co-sponsored by three agencies--JCCs of Greater Boston, Hebrew College, and the Jewish Community Relations Council. We are funded by a generous grant from Combined Jewish Philanthropies; we also receive support from the George and Beatrice Sherman Family Foundation.
