American Jews, Asylum, and the Global Refugee Crisis
This event is free and open to the public.
Over the last year, the number of refugees and displaced people across the world has grown to more than 70.8 million - more than at any time in history. Because of our experiences and our values, the Jewish people have a unique connection to these most vulnerable people.
Join Mark Hetfield, President and CEO of HIAS, to learn more about Jewish displacement in history and the current global refugee crisis, and explore how Jewish values call on us to respond.
