Our celebration began in the Spring with a musical Erev Shabbat featuring Nava Tehilah, an intergenerational tree planting in East Boston, and walking tours of Jewish Brookline and Blake Park.

The celebration continues...

  • Tree Planting: On Sunday, October 23, join an intergenerational group of congregants as we complete our planting of 18 trees in East Boston in the vicinity of the Ohabei Shalom Cemetery, the oldest Jewish cemetery in Massachusetts.

  • Study Weekend: We celebrate Shabbat on October 28-29, with a Study Weekend featuring: Congressman Jake Auchincloss; Rabbi Audrey Marcus Berkman; Rabbi Dan Judson, Hebrew College; Judith Rosenbaum, Jewish Women's Archive; Ken Liss, Brookline Historical Society; Maxim Shrayer, Boston College Professor; J. Malcolm Cawthorne, Brookline High Teacher; Josh Zakim, Housing Forward MA and Rabbi Jennifer Queen. And on October 26, former TOS Associate Rabbi Sanford Seltzer will offer a Zoom presentation to lead into the Study Weekend.

  • Rededication Event: On Saturday, December 3, and as we look forward to Hanukkah, join us for The Music of Ohabei Shalom - Past, Present and Future, a musical celebration featuring Rabbi Audrey Marcus Berkman, Josh Cohen, Rabbi Jennifer Queen, Cantor Randall and Leah Schloss, David Sparr, and Cantor Robbie Solomon. On October 28th-29th, participate in a series of discussions and presentations featuring prominent speakers as we look back and look forward.

Please mark your calendars and look for more information, coming soon. We hope you will join the celebration live in-person or virtually!
