Surviving to Thriving: The Indomitable Spirit of Refugees Across the Globe at Global Day of Jewish Learning

With Rabbi Rachel Grant Meyer, director of education at HIAS
805 Columbus Avenue
New York, NY 10025
United States

Event Description

Using the stories of refugees as our primary texts and the words of Psalms as our commentary, this session 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 session will empower participants to find a path to action on behalf of the world’s refugees using our personal and communal stories of resilience as inspiration.
