Hundreds Turn Out for Opening of Inclusive Jewish Center in Brookline, MA

On December 2nd, New England Yachad celebrated the opening of its new Community Center in Brookline with a ribbon cutting and mezuzah hanging.  Yachad, a division of the Orthodox Union, offers social, recreational, skill-building, vocational and family support programs that bring together individuals with and without disabilities.

It was part of the dedication for a new campus at 384 Harvard Street designed for intergenerational, multi-organization, multi-denominational Jewish engagement. The event was attended by Robert Kraft, Rep. Joe Kennedy, Jewish communal leaders and hundreds of supporters from the Boston area.
