Surviving to Thriving: An Exploration of the Indomitable Spirit of Refugees Worldwide

With Rabbi Rachel Grant Meyer, director of education
477 Longwood Avenue
Boston, MA 02215
United States

This event is free and open to the public. 

Event Description

Join Temple Israel and HIAS for an evening of deepening our understanding about the global refugee crisis. Using the stories of refugees as our primary texts and the words of Psalms as our commentary, we will uncover the multiple layers of loss that refugees experience – of home, employment, culture, loved ones – and reflect on how these experiences inform, but do not limit the people they become. This experiential evening of learning will empower us all to find a path to action on behalf of the world’s refugees using our personal and communal stories of resilience as inspiration.
