Please join us for our annual Social Action Shabbat! In addition to a Shabbat service led by Rabbi Robin Sparr, we’ll have a talk from featured speaker Cheryl Hamilton, an expert on refugee resettlement and immigrant integration. Hamilton currently serves as Lowell site director and director of partner engagement at the International Institute of New England (IINE), a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization dedicated to addressing the needs and rights of refugees and immigrants.

Hamilton will explore why immigrants come to the United States, how they gain entry, and what happens after they arrive. She will also discuss services provided by IINE and what kind of actions we as individuals can take. She will be joined by a recent immigrant who will share their story as well.
