Pulpit on the Common

Religion & Spirituality Podcas >

An ongoing conversation on the intersection of faith and public life, based here in the birthplace of American Freedom, Boston, Massachusetts. The most significant study of the Jewish community, A Portrait of American Jews, by the PEW Research Center in 2013, reinforced a reality that Temple Israel has understood for more than a decade: a mandate for institutional change. Temple Israel has a rich history of developing innovative approaches towards engagement. Pulpit on the Common establishes a new setting for the content and conversation that was once situated on the pulpit – making the pulpit accessible anywhere, anytime, to anyone.
