Join HIAS for a community candle lighting to celebrate the last night of Hanukkah. We will gather virtually for a moment of shared reflection, song, and light, and to hear from activists across the country who are making a difference for refugees in their communities. 

This is an opportunity for advocates, volunteers, and supporters to come together to acknowledge the work we are doing as a community, and to shine a light of welcome for the refugees, immigrants, and asylum seekers still on their journeys to safety.
