Thank You for Coming to the 18th Annual Labor Seder
Thank you to everyone who participated in our 18th Annual Labor Seder!
It was a great evening of celebration, new connection, and honoring the hard work of many in our communities this year. We heard from our special honorees, Frank Callahan of the Mass Building Trades Council, and Rabbi Toba Spitzer of Congregation Dorshei Tzedek, both of whom are incredible longtime defenders of workers rights.
We took time to recognize the Nurses at Tufts Medical Center, who undertook a historic strike to fight for a fair contract, the first group of nurses to strike in Boston in over 30 years. Together, we also recognized the Massachusetts Coalition for Domestic Workers, who have been fighting tirelessly for law and action ensuring safe and fair working conditions for domestic workers through the D0mestic Workers’ Bill of Right. The Coalition has supported the JLC to conduct employer education in synagogues to help implement these legal protections.
A big thank you from the New England JLC to all who came and supported — see you next year!
