The World Jewry Committee invites you to join the Westchester Jewish Coalition for Immigration (WJCI) for a county-wide Zoom program entitled “Border Report: Children in Need,” highlighting the plight of immigrant children impacted by the situation at the southern border on Sunday, June 6, at 7:30pm.

You will hear eyewitness testimony and get expert advice from key leaders about what they and their organizations are doing to provide humanitarian assistance to children at the border and their families. Each speaker will highlight concrete steps that Westchester residents can take to support these children and their families in their journey to a new life in the U.S. Speakers will include: Rabbi Shoshi Levin Goldberg from Temple Israel Center in White Plains, Andrea Rudnick from Team Brownsville, Eddie Chavez Calderon from Arizona Jews for Justice, Bertha M. Rodriguez, Esq. from Community Resource Center in Mamaroneck, and Marti Michael, Scarsdale resident, from Grannies Respond/Abuelas Responden.

Ways to lend a hand include:

  • Assisting asylum seekers at the bus station or airport.
  • Organizing collection and fundraising drives. Purchasing supplies.
  • Urging elected officials to support programs and legislation on behalf of asylum seekers.

We will also hear about other ways to help children from the border living right here in our community at the Abbott House in Irvington and Children’s Village in Dobbs Ferry.

All are welcome to join and can register for this Zoom event at https://bit.ly/3v163Y2.  Please email Holly Rosen Fink with questions at wjciorg@gmail.com.
