Jewish Community Center of Washington, DC

Starting Anew: Immigration Stories of Reinvention
Edlavitch DCJCC

 KAMA DC Storytelling night 2022

Spring is a time of growth and rebirth, two themes that are integral to every immigrant’s story. Starting over requires courage, grit, and resilience. It can mean seeking out slices of home in your new city, or discovering entirely new passions to represent a new beginning. Join KAMA DC and the Edlavitch DCJCC to hear immigrants and refugees from across the DMV share their tales of reinvention and revival over drinks and dessert.

Come to make friends and share community under the stars!

When: Thursday, May 26, 7:30 - 9:00 PM

Where: The Edlavitch DC Jewish Community Center's Parking Lot
