As we prepare to commemorate the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai with Shavuot celebrations Saturday evening, we're pleased to share this powerful music video from “REVIVAL The Show.” Inspired by the most repeated commandment in the Torah –love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt– the song speaks to the importance of welcoming immigrants and refugees and asks us to remember our own vulnerability so that we might recognize it in others. REVIVALa New York-based spiritual folk rock performance, released their first music video of "You Were Strangers" in solidarity with HIAS.
