Looking to the Future with Representative Simon Cataldo

May 19 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

- Free

Join us for an inspiring and informative talk by Kerem Shalom member, State Representative Simon Cataldo. Simon was elected to represent the 14th Middlesex District in the Massachusetts House of Representatives in 2022.

In his wide-ranging talk, Simon will focus on how Judaism and Tikkun Olam can inform service in elected office. Even before running for office, it was clear that Simon was motivated by Tikkun Olam. In his early twenties, he built from scratch a school-based academic intervention program for at-risk youth called Harlem Lacrosse. He grew it into a national nonprofit employing over 60 full-time people in five cities.

Simon brings an unusual combination of personal qualities to his work on Beacon Hill and in his district. He is passionate about what he does, innovative about how he approaches issues, hard-working, and collaborative. The issues facing the state as a whole and the communities he represents—Carlisle, and parts of Concord, Acton, and Chelmsford—are challenging. Simon has taken on tough issues, including plans for the homeless, education, climate and the environment, housing, integrity in government, and health care—as well as issues that specifically affect his communities in a major way, such as what to do with the Concord prison property and reconfiguring the Route 2 rotary. Simon serves on the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Boston.
