Ann Toback Executive Director

The Workmen's Circle/Arbeter Ring seeks to create Jewish learning communities committed to social justice and Jewish cultural heritage. Founded in 1900, the Workmen's Circle organized low-paid Eastern European immigrants around secular Yiddish culture and ideals of social and economic justice. Today, the Workmen's Circle operates schools and Jewish learning centers across America, in addition to running a summer camp and retreat center. The Workmen's Circle's institutions expose students and their families to Yiddish and Yiddish culture, and provide educational programming about social justice.
