Closing Congregations

This pilot project explores congregations that have closed in greater Boston between 2000 and the present. While case studies abound, we are working on a methodology to systematically identify which congregations closed, what happened to their people and buildings, and what local actors – from religious officials to city planners and architects – are involved in these processes. A short description of the work in process is here.
