From Strangers to Neighbors: Creating More Welcoming Communities

Sunday, March 16, 2014 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Have you ever felt like an outsider? Have you ever wished you could make someone else feel more comfortable in your community? Do you have ideas for how we can better welcome newcomers into our congregations, schools, communities, and greater society? This session is for anyone who wants to learn more about how they can fulfill the mitzvah of “welcoming the stranger” and helping to create more welcoming communities. In this session led by InterfaithFamily and HIAS, we will guide discussions and interactive activities that explore the experiences of “newcomers” and “strangers” in our communities—i.e. those who are not Jewish, immigrants, Jews by choice, and more.
