This event is free and open to the public. Click here for more information.
Over the last year, the number of refugees and displaced people across the world has grown to more than 70 million – more than any time in history. Because of our experiences and our values, the Jewish people have a unique connection to these most vulnerable people. Join Nikki Salzman, Major Gifts Officer at 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.
Nikki will be speaking at Temple Shir Shalom during Friday night services on August 23 and the following morning, Saturday, August 24 at Congregation B’nai Israel.
