National Refugee Shabbat at Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan
This event has been cancelled.
Please watch the HIAS events page for updates.
In the face of unprecedented attempts to close America’s doors to those seeking freedom from violence and persecution, this is a critical moment to give voice to our values as Jews and as Americans. National Refugee Shabbat 5780 is a moment for congregations, organizations, and individuals across the country to dedicate a Shabbat experience to refugees and asylum seekers.
Join us at Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan to hear from Melanie Nezer, Senior Vice President for Public Affairs at HIAS. Together we will deepen our understanding of today’s global refugee crisis, connect to the national Jewish movement for refugees, celebrate local acts of welcome, and recommit to putting our values into action.
