Join us for services on Friday, February 7, and a delicious congregational dinner which will be followed by a talk with Mark Hetfield, President and CEO of HIAS. 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 us to learn more about Jewish displacement in history and the current global refugee crisis, and explore how Jewish values call on us to respond.
