This coming March, Jewish Family Service will proudly cheer-lead HIAS’ National Refugee Shabbat, during which Jews across the country will take action for refugees and asylum seekers. Over Shabbat during March 20-21, 2020, the American Jewish community will dedicate sacred time and space to refugees and asylum seekers. Building on the momentum of the inaugural National Refugee Shabbat, in which nearly 300 congregations across the United States and abroad participated, this National Refugee Shabbat will be an opportunity to once again raise awareness in our community, to recognize the work that has been done, and to reaffirm our commitment to welcoming refugees and asylum seekers.
Friday, March 20 – Saturday, March 21, 2020
