Seeking Asylum: Judaism and Refuge: A discussion series in anticipation of the Days of Awe      

You shall not oppress a stranger, 

for you know the feelings of the strangers,

having yourselves been strangers in the land of Egypt.

Exodus 23:9

What can we, as Jews, do to help refugees? What wisdom do we find in Torah about how to treat the stranger in our midst? 

Please join us for a weekly discussion during the month of Elul.
