Remembering the St. Louis: The Global Refugee Crisis Through a Jewish Lens
On June 6th, 1939, the U.S. turned away M.S. St. Louis, a boat populated by nearly 1,000 Jewish refugees fleeing the Holocaust. Because of our history and our values, the Jewish people have a unique connection to refugees and displaced people across the world. In this program, we’ll ground ourselves in a shared understanding of this crisis, explore the Jewish values that command us to welcome the stranger, and learn how to take action in support of refugees worldwide.
