On May 20 and May 27 the Prison Justice Group will be collecting books for prisoners. Please follow these
guidelines for what books are needed and accepted.
The group strives to foster awareness of the lives of people who are incarcerated and contribute in ways that improve their lives. We encourage our congregation and community to join us in taking active steps toward prison reform and to participate in our outreach activities to prisoners.

The group strives to promote deeper knowledge and understanding of current issues in the Middle East, especially where our government or the United Nations plays a role. This is done by offering educational opportunities such as films, book discussions, and lectures. Much of the programming concerns the Israeli/ Palestinian conflict.

The group provides love, friendship, and support for a very tiny Unitarian congregation, Bordos, far up on the western slope of the Carpathian Alps in Transylvania. This is the Hungarian-speaking area of Romania, at the far eastern spread of the Reformation where our Unitarian heritage began over 440 years ago and continues in unbroken line to this day. The Bordos church itself is just now celebrating its 100th anniversary, having been sanctified on September 18, 1910, and the congregation eagerly awaits our contact.

The 30s Group is a welcoming spiritual and social community for people in their 30s. Together, we explore the issues facing us, seek personal and spiritual growth, and engage in the larger First Parish Community. For more information, e-mail 30s [at] firstparishcambridge [dot] org
The Jewish Culture Group welcomes all who are interested in exploring Jewish culture as a part of their UU identities. The group will provide a chance for discussion around topics related to Jewish culture, as well as sharing of favorite songs, stories, readings, and recipes. For those of us who grew up Jewish, this group will serve as a chance to celebrate our cultural roots in the context of our current religious community.
