Plan an event for National Refugee Shabbat

This October, NCJW will be a proud co-sponsor of HIAS’ National Refugee Shabbat, during which Jews across the country will take action for refugees. We hope you will join us!

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. To learn more, we encourage you to read this Programming Content Resource which contains an assortment of fully-guided programmatic suggestions, as well as resources for use during Shabbat services.

Over the Shabbat of October 19-20, 2018, the American Jewish community will dedicate sacred time and space to refugees and asylum seekers. Together, we will learn about the global refugee crisis, connect to the national Jewish movement for refugees, celebrate local acts of welcome and recommit to putting our values into action.
