[streaming] HIAS Refugee Shabbat Morning Service
March 6 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Rabbi Greg and the Social Justice Committee are thrilled to welcome Rabbi Lee Bycel, humanitarian, teacher and author, to join us for a very special HIAS Refugee Shabbat, where we will have the opportunity to learn about the challenges facing refugees today. With many years of experience behind him, Rabbi Bycel has recently written a stirring book entitled Refugees in America: Stories of Courage, Resilience, and Hope in Their Own Words.
Rabbi Bycel was motivated to write this book after experiencing first-hand the plight of people forced into refugee camps. He has visited numerous refugee camps worldwide and will offer important insights about this most pressing problem and how we can engage meaningfully in helping refugees today.
Rabbi Bycel will offer the drash on Shabbat morning, drawing lessons about the refugee situation from the weekly Torah portion. Following services, around 12:15, everyone will be invited to get their lunch and join us for an inspiring presentation, “The Journey of the Refugee: From Survival to Rebuilding a Ruptured Life,” based on his book. We hope that you will save the date and plan on joining us. The zoom link will be provided on our Partners-only page. To learn more about the national HIAS Refugee Shabbat click here:
