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.
