Over the last year, the number of refugees and displaced people across the world has grown to more than 65 million--more than at any other time in history. Because of our own history and values, the Jewish people have a unique connection and obligation to these most vulnerable people, made all the more critical by efforts to bar refugees from the United States. Join Rabbi Rachel Grant Meyer, education director for community engagement at HIAS, the world's oldest, and only Jewish, refugee resettlement organization, for an interactive session on this important topic. We'll ground ourselves in a shared understanding of the global refugee crisis and the Jewish values that underpin our imperative to act, and take action in support of refugees worldwide.
