Since its founding, the Workmen’s Circle has been committed to understanding the roots of injustice and finding ways to act for a better world, un besere velt in Yiddish. We weave that commitment into every layer of our schools, including our holiday rituals, arts and culture programming, and our children’s. The Workmen’s Circle shares its emphasis on values and encourages students and families to find their own ways to become world-changers. We are proud to be a community that makes room for the respectful airing of differing views on issues that can be controversial.
The Workmen’s Circle makes learning immediately relevant for our children and families. Our young activists raise and donate funds to any one of dozens of worthy causes, volunteer at local senior housing and food pantries, participate in Mitzvah Days, march in protests, join movements, and much more.
