Location: New York, NY
Category: Advocacy or Public Service
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.
Ann Toback joined the Workmen’s Circle/Arbeter Ring as executive director in 2009. She previously served as a labor leader of the Writers Guild of America, East, which she led in a successful 2008 strike in New York City. Toback’s publishing background includes editorial positions at Oxford University Press and Scribner’s. A graduate of Boston University Law School, Toback also worked as an associate at Rosenberg and Shapiro.
