SAFELY NAVIGATING THE DIGITAL WORLD.
Welcome to TAG Boston!
TAG (Technology Awareness Group) Boston is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing the Greater Boston Jewish community with the tools, education and support staff needed for today‘s rapidly-changing technology landscape.
TAG Boston is affiliated with TAG International and endorsed by our local community leaders. Our FREE services are provided by dedicated trained volunteers. Since 2012 at the historic conference at CITI FIELD, TAG has launched close to 60 branches worldwide. The mission of each branch is to empower people to engage in technology in a deliberate, healthy and responsible manner consistent with their unique Jewish values. TAG volunteers ensure that every person is comfortable with the guidance and service provided. We invite you to join the many people who have taken advantage of TAG’s services to protect themselves and their families from the challenges posed by digital technology.

What People are Saying
Knowing that my kids and the adults in our home are protected when they go online gives me so much peace of mind. Rabbi Solomon and the volunteers really worked with me to find the filter that worked the best for our family’s needs and customize it for us.
Getting our devices tagged was the best decision we ever made! Our tech at TAG not only provided us with the right tools for our lifestyle but they were very helpful, friendly and consultative. We feel confident and safe knowing that we are protected and have ongoing support from TAG to help!
As parents, we're pulled in 100 directions at the same time. Having TAG customize our filter on the computer helps us cover gaps in supervision that would be hard to close otherwise. It is relief that our children cannot access content online (accidentally or stealthily) without our approval.
