HIAS weekend: Focus on refugees


Friday, February 3, 2023 - Sunday, February 5, 2023    
All day

Join us for a weekend of learning and consideration:

  • Friday, February 3 — A First Friday family Shabbat introducing HIAS and the events of the weekend.
  • Saturday, February 4 — After our Shabbat service at 10:30 AM followed by a kiddush lunch, meet the Salvadoran refugee family that Beth El has been helping for some time: learn about them, the challenges they face, and what we are doing to help them. Facilitated by Judy Sletzinger. Click here to see photos and drawings from the family.
  • Sunday, February 5 from 3-5 PM — Hear short personal stories of immigration and our Jewish identities from Beth El members at a coffee house modeled on the PBS Moth Story Hour. Click here for the Zoom link.

There will be light refreshments at all events throughout the weekend.

These events are sponsored by the Beth El Sanctuary Committee. Donations to support our sanctuary work are always welcome — click here, and in the dropdown of funds to support, select “Sanctuary Project.”
