To enhance communication between Soviet Jewish immigrants and the professional and lay leaders of the Boston Jewish community, a day-long seminar of dialogue was held recently. Its two-fold focus was on the images and expectations that each group held of the other and how as Jews the immigrants and the community leaders could understand each other better. A number of valuable insights were gained during the seminar.
