Throughout the year, we offer community-wide skill building opportunities designed for clergy, educators, Jewish professionals and lay leaders. These unique, interactive and topical programs are developed, taught and sponsored by the Union for Reform Judaism, in collaboration with the Combined Jewish Philanthropies of Greater Boston, the Central Conference of American Rabbis, and the Jewish Discovery Institute; and in cooperation with Mayyim Hayyim Community Mikveh & Education Center, the Synagogue Council of Massachusetts, InterfaithFamily, and Jewish Community Centers of Greater Boston.
