Dear Friend,

In challenging times, community is critical. Thank you for being part of the HIAS Welcome Campaign, and the Jewish movement for refugees.

Right now there are three important opportunities to raise our collective voices in support of refugees:

  • Write letters to Members of Congress asking them to oppose legislation harmful to refugees. Print out multiple copies of this letter and gather signatures from your congregation. We will be offering trainings on how to hold an in-district meeting with Congress, so that you can deliver these letters, on February 3, at 12:00pm EST and February 7, at 3:00pm EST. Mark your calendars and look out for more information on this soon.
     
  • Join “Jews for Refugees,” our new Facebook group. If you are raising awareness, volunteering, organizing, lobbying, or simply interested in learning more about the global refugee crisis and how to respond, this group is the place for you (and any other like-minded people you know). HIAS will use this space to disseminate information and action items in real time, and we invite you to share articles, stories, and anything refugee-related. Please join the group by clicking here! Please also invite members of your congregation to join, and encourage them to invite their friends who may also be interested.
In hope, 

Isabel
