In the spirit of “welcoming the stranger,” we invite you to join the Central Synagogue community for a special Shabbat dinner catered and hosted by training chefs from the organization Emma’s Torch, which provides refugees with culinary training, ESL classes, and job interview preparation. During the dinner we will not only eat a delicious Shabbat meal together, but we will also hear from alumni of the program, HIAS' Pro Bono Program Manager Sarah Burrows, and other speakers about important issues relating to refugees in the United States.
