TBT’s Friday Night Service will present Refugee Shabbat on Zoom

The Social Justice Committee invites the community to Refugee Shabbat, a national initiative through HIAS (Hebrew Immigration Aid Society) to raise awareness about the global refugee crisis on Friday, February 3. It is important to note that on this date congregations globally will hold Refugee Shabbat. For the first time ever, the total number of displaced persons globally is over 100 million. With this Shabbat and other initiatives to follow, we at TBT affirm our Jewish commitment to caring for refugees. The Director of Community Engagement and Initiatives at HIAS will be coming to speak to us during services and lead our Q&A session after services
