At the risk of stating the obvious, the last few months have been tough on refugees and those of us who believe wholeheartedly in the American and Jewish tradition of welcoming them.
I just watched HIAS’ newest video, “Signs of Hope” about a special group of refugees who survived war in Somalia and are now building new lives in Buffalo, NY. It restored my spirits and I hope it will do the same for you.
The promise of a new life — a chance at safety and freedom for one’s family — is something offered to far too few of the world’s refugees. But for those few, it can make all the difference in the world.
Please watch the video on hias.org, and help us spread the word, especially on Facebook, where it has already been viewed nearly 10,000 times! And when you are done, please join us in making refugees feel welcome in America.
