From Woodrow Avenue to Woodrow Avenue: The Path of an Organizer and a Jewish Community

By Ari Lipman

Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association (RRA), Reconstructionist Rabbinical College (RRC), Fall 2003

The author describes the advocacy and direct action work of the Greater Boston Interfaith Organization (GBIO) and the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF). He argues that this work is the true continuation of early Jewish social action and mutual support efforts (such as the creation of Free Loan societies) with which modern synagogues and congregations ought to occupy themselves, both as an expression of Jewish values and as effective community building.
