The Global Refugee Crisis: Out of the Headlines and into our Hearts and Haggadot

Thursday, March 30, 2017
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Edlavitch DCJCC

With more than 65 million refugees and displaced people worldwide, the global refugee crisis is worse than any time in history as victims of persecution and violence around the world flee home in search of safety.

Come learn more about this staggering crisis and how the United States is responding. We will also explore the stories of today’s refugees and find ways to weave their stories into our upcoming Passover celebrations, the Jewish people’s retelling of our own journey from oppression to freedom. This interactive program will be facilitated by Rabbi Rachel Grant Meyer, Director of Education at HIAS, the world’s oldest, and only Jewish, refugee resettlement organization.

A vegetarian dinner will be served.

We request a $10 registration fee to help cover the costs of the program. If this is in any way a hardship please email Sonya.

In partnership with HIAS and AVODAH: The Jewish Service Corps.
