Plus, we will be joined by guest teacher Joe Goldman of HIAS who will speak to us about the Jewish community response to the current refugee crisis from Ukraine to Afghanistan. There’s so much we can do right here in San Francisco! Location to be announced with registration, but it will be inside. 

09 May
Join HIAS for a monthly program offering compassion and solidarity to asylum seekers in detention through a formal letter writing program with individuals who have requested correspondence, helping them access hope and connection.
How does international law impact our understanding of who is a refugee, how are refugees processed, and what does a refugee experience prior to their entry into the U.S.? Join HIAS' Pro Bono & Partnerships team and special guest Jessica Therkelsen, HIAS' Director for Legal Protection, for a closer examination of how refugee law works on a global scale.
Join us for a conversation with HIAS’ leadership where we will share our understanding and analysis of what is being put into place to welcome Ukrainian refugees, how it will work, what the challenges may be, and how communities can show up in this moment.
