National Refugee Shabbat
Friday, October 19 at 7:00 pm
On Friday, October 19th, we will be participating with over 100 congregations across the nation in “National Refugee Shabbat,” sponsored by HIAS, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society. We’ve decided to join this nation-wide event to give voice to our values as American Jews who stand up for the safety and lives of people around the world.
Share Your Story
We are looking for volunteers from our own families to participate in a storytelling portion of the service. We would love to have you share a narrative about a refugee or immigration experience from your family during this very meaningful Shabbat service. If interested in sharing a story from your family, please contact Diane Judem at [email protected] or (508) 788-0393. Your story will provide a poignant addition to this very special evening.
Listen to Jodi and Adam’s recent recording of “Sanctuary”, one of the inspiring songs you will hear at this service.
Unite with Other Congregations
National Refugee Shabbat 2018 is a moment for our congregation to join others around the country in creating a Shabbat experience dedicated to refugees. This will be an opportunity for our CBT family to deepen our understanding of today’s global refugee crisis, connect with the Jewish movement for refugees, commit (or recommit) to taking action, and launch new efforts in aiding refugees. This special service will include storytelling, music, and speakers.
