Our Community

Greater Boston's Jewish community is a growing, evolving place. That's why every 10 years we commission an in-depth community study to understand our challenges, seek new opportunities and learn where support is needed. Read about our community as defined in the newly released 2015 study. Or read the CJP Overview to see how we plan to address these findings.
