HIAS PROGRAM

Come together with hundreds of fellow refugee advocates and activists across the globe to send out Shabbat with a joyful havdalah service (the service that marks the conclusion of Shabbat) led by HIAS Rabbi-in-Residence Rachel Grant Meyer,  Rabbi Yosef Goldman, and Rabbi Annie Lewis. Our blessings will be woven together with the voices of historical and contemporary refugees. We will also enjoy a live performance of the song “You Were Strangers” from the spiritual folk-rock show REVIVAL written by Kristen Plylar-Moore and performed this evening by musicians Lea Kalisch, Julia Ostrov, and Rabbi Tobias Moss. Together, we will raise our voices in support of displaced people worldwide.

HIAS PROGRAM

Individual and community involvement can make a tremendous difference in the lives of refugees, asylum seekers, and the forcibly displaced. Yet when confronted with the fact that there are now over 80 million displaced people in the world, it is easy to be overwhelmed. But there is so much we can do to make a meaningful difference. 

Join us for an afternoon conversation about how global Jewish communities are doing just this. We’ll hear from colleagues at HIAS and other organizations working in collaboration with Jewish communities in Europe, Canada, Latin America, and the United States in support of and in solidarity with displaced people, and explore how the emergent global Jewish movement for refugees is evolving.
