Refugee Rights

Based on the recognition that each person is created b’tzelem Elohim (in the image of God) and motivated by our teachings, including: “Do not stand idly by”, Temple Emunah Refugee Action came together to mobilize our efforts to support refugees and immigrants. We work to identify organizations with expertise in working with refugees and immigrants, and to find ways for Temple Emunah to partner with these organizations. We also aim to inform Temple Emunah members about current developments and ways that we, as individuals and collectively, can provide help and support. For more information, contact Barbara Posnick, or Sylvia Perlman.
