JANUARY 25, 2016 

Dear Friend,


President Trump is preparing to restrict refugee resettlement. This is a betrayal of American values and American leadership. Depriving refugees of safe haven scapegoats vulnerable human beings and does nothing to make us safer. It confuses the victims with the horrors they are fleeing.

Donald Trump’s politics of fear run contrary to the values of more than 250 Welcome Campaign congregations across the country, the 1,700 American rabbis in 48 states, and our local affiliates in 22 cities, who work every day to make sure America remains a place which welcomes those seeking safety.

We will fight this abandonment of American and Jewish values with every tool at our disposal, because we know the consequences of constructing barriers to keep people trying to flee genocide and persecution out.

This is the time to act. Please share these opportunities with your whole congregation.

In solidarity,



HIAS, the world's oldest, and only Jewish, refugee organization, works in 11 countries across five continents to ensure that refugees and displaced persons can live in safety and with dignity. Once, we helped refugees because they were Jewish. Today we help refugees because we are Jewish.
