The Synagogue Council of Massachusetts

Jewish Continuity

The Synagogue Council and the congregational movements, in partnership with CJP ( and its agencies, have been an integral part of the trailblazing work of the Greater Boston Jewish community's extensive Jewish continuity agenda. This includes three major community-wide initiatives: (1) Sh'arim - providing Family Educators to synagogues, day schools and JCCs; (2) ME-AH - an intensive adult Jewish learning initiative coordinated by Hebrew College; and (3) YESOD (the Youth Educator Initiative) - enhancing congregational youth work, coordinated by SCM and the Bureau of Jewish Education; and two new initiatives: JRNI (the Jewish Resource Network Initiative) and ACE (Advancing Congregational Education).
