The Jewish Value of Welcoming the Stranger
Jewish response to the global refugee crisis:
- The Conservative Movement's Statement Condemning President Trump's Executive Order on Immigartion and Refugees
- The JCRC's Response to the Refugee Crisis
- Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) issued a statement signed by over 1900 Rabbis, including our own Rabbi Rein, welcoming refugees
How you can get involved:
More than 250 congregations across the nation are taking action to raise awareness, volunteer, and provide direct assistance to refugees through the HIAS Welcome Campaign. Launched in May 2015, the campaign has evolved into a nationwide grassroots initiative in response to the global refugee crisis.
Members of the Social Action Committee of Agudas Achim Congregation have joined with the PICO National Network for its sanctuary training program for places of worship. We will be building out our work in this area.
