Join HIAS, the refugee agency of the Jewish community, to demand that America’s doors are reopened to refugees fleeing violence and persecution. In the 1930’s, Jewish refugees were turned away from these shores in their greatest hour of need. Our community must stand up for refugees, and not allow history to repeat itself.
Help represent Lab/Shul at this powerful community action. Come raise up your voice to protect the Statue of Liberty and all that she stands for and recognize the many people whose lives are at risk if they are unable to find safety here in this country.
Sister actions will be held the same day around the country, rain or shine!
Sunday, February 12 @ 11 AM – 12 PM EST
Battery Park – New York, NY 10004
Join other Lab/Shul community members HERE, directly in front of the Castle Clinton National Monument. Look for Sarah holding up a Lab/Shul sign.
