The Question of Jewish Responsibility Towards Asylum Seekers

April 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Click to register

The last few years have awakened the world to the tragic reality of displacement and exile. Stories and pictures across social media have put faces on the millions of people who have fled their homes or been forcibly moved. The Jewish people are all too familiar with these stories. From crossing deserts in search of a home to fleeing genocide, we have relived the experience of exodus time and again.

How do we translate our Jewish values and traditions to actions in the current reality? How can you and your community play a positive role in Israel?

Join us in a Panel discussion featuring

Mutasim Ali – Leading refugee activist and former Executive Director, African Refugee Development Center
Rotem Ilan – Founder, Israeli Children
Rabbi Fred Scherlinder Dobb – Adat Shalom Reconstructionist Congregation
