Join us at Temple Aliyah to observe National Refugee Shabbat, when we will seek to learn more about the worldwide refugee crisis, what local Jewish organizations are doing about it and what we can do to support them.

Guest speaker will be Jerry Rubin, president and CEO of Jewish Vocational Service (JVS), who will discuss the role the Jewish community has historically played in refugee support and resettlement and, in particular, the longstanding efforts of JVS in providing assistance to refugees in the Bay State.

National Refugee Shabbat is sponsored by HIAS, a Jewish communal organization that has helped more than 4.5 million refugees escape persecution over the past 130 years.

If you plan to attend, please email or call the temple office at 781-444-8522.
