“Welcoming the Stranger, Immigrant Justice and Experience” at Limmud Seattle
January 18 @ 6:30 pm - January 19 @ 6:30 pm| $36 – $72
Presentation by JCIJ-NW members Libby Cohen, Andrea Soroko Naar, Dina Burstein, Diane Baer, and Susan Schulkin
The immigration crisis resonates deeply with the Jewish experience: Leviticus tells us that “you shall love [the stranger] as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.” In a very short time, the current administration has used extreme measures that have transformed the immigration process and harmed hundreds of thousands of immigrants.
In this interactive session, the presenters will relate the Jewish community’s response to the immigration crisis, and highlight collaborations with other immigrant justice organizations that defend the rights and dignity of all immigrants and refugees. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the current crisis and actions that can be taken to advocate for immigrant justice.
Limmud Seattle is a participant in a global movement of independent, volunteer-run Jewish learning events. Workshops and activities start @ 6:30pm Saturday, January 18, 2020 – Sunday January 19 @ 6:30pm. Schedule here and register here.
