Welcoming the Stranger: Jewish Values, Immigration, and Refugees

  • This event has passed.

Jewish text often reminds us of our ancestors’ history as refugees and wandering immigrants, commanding us to love the stranger (36 times, to be exact). But what does welcoming the stranger actually mean in today’s complicated political climate?

On the day before National Refugee Shabbat, explore with Rabbi Jesse what Jewish values and traditions say about our obligation to stand up for the rights of refugees, asylum seekers, and immigrants.

No one will be turned away from any of our classes due to lack of funds. For more information, please contact our Religious Programming Associate, Annie.
