80 Gather for “Discover Jewish Malden” Shabbaton

Participants Gather for the Conclusion to the Discover Malden Shabbaton

It was quite the week for the Jewish Community of Malden, MA, part of the Greater Boston Jewish Community. We broke ground on our brand-new mikvah, welcomed in several families who are looking to grow their families in one of the most affordable Jewish communities on the east coast, and brought a piece of the New York Jewish experience to Boston by serving Dougie’s Barbeque and Grill at the shul’s largest-ever annual Lag Ba’Omer event.

“The excitement of all who attended was palpable,” said Rabbi Yitzchak Zev Rabinowitz, Beth Israel of Malden’s rabbi.

Many of the participants came for the weekend to learn about all of the wonderful Jewish community aspects and necessities Malden has to offer. Malden is just minutes away from Boston with convenient public transportation to the downtown financial area, and affordable day care for our growing toddler population. We offer tuition subsidies and home loan assistance, transportation to local schools, three daily minyanim, and an expansive eruv that includes many parks.

As part of the shabbaton, guests were treated to a Carlebach style Kabbalat Shabbat, community luncheon and walking tour of the area.

“We were so glad that we were able to make it for this exciting and educational weekend, and look forward to investigating more how we can make Malden – a great community near Boston – our next home,” said one of the guests.
