Farewell Paul

We are grateful for Paul Kelly's 17 years of dedicated service to Synagogue Council and to the community at large. Words cannot capture his value. We wish him well in all of his future endeavors.
One Step Ahead of Cancer

Ashkenazi Jews have a one-in-forty chance of inheriting a BRCA gene mutation that puts them at high risk of developing cancer that can be prevented or detected early.

Synagogue Council is proud to team up with two initiatives dedicated to raising awareness and supporting genetic testing and cancer research.  Oneinforty educates about about the Jewish-cancer connection and what can be done to detect and prevent cancer early. 

We invite you and your communities to learn more at Oneinforty's upcoming symposium  Knowledge is Empowering: Understanding the Jewish-Cancer Connection on Thursday, November 9, 2017 from 7:00-8:30 PM at Congregation Kerem Shalom in Concord.  The event is free, but please register in advance.

Look for information about the BRCA Founder Outreach (BFOR) Study coming to Boston!  BFOR will offer free genetic testing for BRCA genetic mutations to about 1,000 Massachusetts residents of Ashkenazi descent over the age of 25.
Fundraising for Congregations

Synagogue Council will be offering a series of seminars on fundraising for congregations
to be located in the greater Boston/CJP catchment and at venues throughout the state. 

Details coming soon!
