Defying the Nazis: The Sharps' War is an account of a daring rescue mission that occurred on the precipice of World War II. It tells the story of Waitstill & Martha Sharp, a Unitarian minister and his wife from Wellesley, Massachusetts, who left their children behind in the care of their parish and boldly committed to multiple life-threatening missions in Europe. Over two dangerous years they helped to save hundreds of imperiled political dissidents and Jewish refugees fleeing the Nazi occupation across Europe.     Admission is free and open to all. Pack your dinner- soft drinks and snacks are free.



Coby Brimer, Asher Pincus and Abigayl Pavel are ready to sound their shofarot with the Rabbi on Rosh Hanshanah morning.

Now in its 11th year, The Community Free Synagogue is a new and progressive model for the 21st century American synagogue guided by Rabbi Bruce Diamond, D.D., a noted community leader, scholar and master teacher.  C.F.S. does not sell memberships tickets or set fees for any of its many programs and events.  The synagogue is an open community resource whose mission is prayer, study and benevolent acts. The synagogue is comfortably supported through a spirit of volunteerism and by the generosity of the hundreds of households that make C.F.S. their congregational home. All of its programs and events, including youth Hebrew and Jewish education, are open to all without fees or solicitations.
