WJC’s Refugee Shabbat supports a broader, global effort spearheaded by HIAS and WJCI. This annual initiative is an opportunity to learn about the experiences of refugees—during our hosted event, you will hear from our new neighbor from the Ukraine—as well as the vital and powerful refugee resettlement work of these organizations.

About HIAS and WJCI’s Annual Refugee Shabbat

This past year our hearts swelled at the massive global effort to evacuate and find safe homes for refugees, including Ukrainians, Afghans, Venezuelans, and Haitians fleeing for their lives. Our hearts broke hearing these people’s stories, forced to leave their homes due to the threat of danger, and turned away at border crossings worldwide. This year, Refugee Shabbat 2023, powered by HIAS, will take place on February 3-4 on a global scale and will provide each of us with a significant opportunity to reaffirm our support for refugees, asylum seekers, and all immigrants looking for safety and a warm welcome in their new homes.
