This Hanukkah, on December 14, join HIAS for our first-ever National Jews for Refugees Assembly. This will be an opportunity for individuals, congregations, rabbis, organizations, and elected officials committed to refugees and asylum seekers to come together for an hour of learning and action. We will hear from actor and activist, Mandy Patinkin, and refugee advocate, Teklit Michael. Together, we will shine the light of welcome from our homes across the country and around the world. With music from award-winning musician and educator, Shira Kline, we will light the candles together, so bring your Hanukkah and get ready to celebrate a return to our values of welcome, dignity, and safety for all.We are ready for the hard work of restoring refugee resettlement and rebuilding safe and humane asylum protections in the U.S. Harnessing the power of the American Jewish movement for refugees, let’s raise our collective voice with hope and focus for the work ahead. Additional speakers to be announced shortly.+ More... - Less...
