Refugees and the Jewish Tradition

  • Holocaust Memorial Center 28123 Orchard Lake Road Farmington Hills, MI, 48334 United States (map)

Join The Well, in partnership with NEXTGen Detroit, JCRC, Repair The World, AJC ACCESS, Detroit City Moishe House and Royal Oak Moishe House for a learning experience open to the entire community as we explore the Jewish tradition's view of refugees.

Along with coffee and snacks, we'll have the opportunity to study a wide range of texts (both ancient and contemporary, Jewish and secular), we'll hear a local resettled Syrian refugee's testimony, and together we'll conclude the evening by lighting Chanukah candles.

Thanks to the generosity of donors, there is no cost to attend. Please consider bringing a small, unwrapped gift to be donated to a local shelter to help brighten a child's holiday season.
