Welcoming Refugees: Learning from the Past, Rising to the Moment
Presented by Mark Hetfield, HIAS President and CEO
Over the last year, the number of refugees and displaced people across the world has grown to more than 70 million – more than any time in history. Because of our experiences and our values, the Jewish people have a unique connection to these most vulnerable people. Join Mark Hetfield, President and CEO at HIAS, to learn more about Jewish displacement in history and the current global refugee crisis, and explore how Jewish values call on us to respond.
A light breakfast will be served.
