State of Moral Emergency: The Jewish Response to the Immigration Crisis

With Melanie Nezer, Senior Vice President of Public Affairs
10 East 66th Street
New York, NY 10065
United States


This event is free to attend. Please reserve your ticket here.

The banning of immigrants from entire countries. New limitations on asylum. The separation of desperate refugee children from their parents.

Few communities have a deeper understanding of the human consequences of such draconian changes in U.S. immigration policy – or a greater moral obligation to respond – than does ours. What does Jewish law require us to do? What does Jewish history demand we do?

Please join us for an important discussion about bringing immigration reform to the center of the Jewish conversational table.
