Gishur: Connecting Communities

Gishur empowers European Jewish community leaders and activists to challenge xenophobia and to promote inclusion through dialogue with refugees, asylum seekers, and migrants. Coordinated by HIAS Europe in partnership with CEJI and Paideia, Gishur accomplishes this objective through capacity, community, and coalition building.

As part of this work, Gishur has developed Jewish holiday resources for Shabbat, Passover, and Sukkot. These resources are designed to be used at events that, inspired by Jewish holiday themes and ideas, offer awareness-raising activities and learning opportunities focused on promoting inclusive communities that are respectful of refugees and migrants of all faiths.

The resources also offer practical support and advice for planning such an event, including an array of pedagogical tools and techniques that can be helpful when facilitating activities from the Gishur holiday resources.
