In response to the immigrant and refugee crisis, congregations across Maryland are hosting programs to educate our community and give members opportunities to take action. Many congregations are hosting programs as part of HIAS National Refugee Shabbat.
This is a list of congregations partnering with Jews United for Justice to share information about the immigrant justice issues we are working on in our local communities, such as the Trust Act. If you’d like to plan a program for your community, please contact Emmanuel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
