Contribute to Social Justice: CBST Sanctuary Initiative

On Kol Nidre, Rabbi Kleinbaum spoke about the history of Jewish persecution and demonization and immigration, and how today's efforts to demonize Muslims, Mexicans, and others are connected to our history. She called on each of us to "Be the reason people believe in the goodness of people."  We are proud of CBST's Sanctuary Initiative: Supporting Immigrants, Refugees, and Asylum Seekers at CBST. Click here to read more about what this means   You can become part of this Initiative: 

  • Make a Contribution HERE
  • Let us know of your interest in the Weekly Immigration Clinic. In partnership with the New Sanctuary Coalition, RUSA, and SAFE (Seeking Asylum and Finding Empowerment), the clinic focuses on LGBTQ immigrants, assisting those representing themselves (pro se) and connecting those who need it to professional legal services. To volunteer and find out about the training program, contact Noah at NHabeeb@cbst.org

  • Lawyers interested in volunteering are invited to take CBST's "Introduction to Asylum Law," 1.5 CLE credit hours in Areas of Professional Practice. This accredited NY continuing legal education (CLE) course provides an overview of the law of asylum, with specific reference to cases based on sexual orientation and gender identity. We offer this course free of charge for attorneys who commit to at least 10 hours of volunteering at CBST's clinic. Click here to let us know you'd like to get involved! 

The Sanctuary team is led by Sabrina Farber and Sherry Fyman, with CBST members Noemi Masliah, Lyosha Gorshkov, Harold Levine, Marsha Melnick, and Rick Landman, and CBST Director of Social Justice Programming, Rabbi Marisa James. 

"Never again means never again for anyone. That is a basic truth." We continue to deepen our commitment to immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers, knowing that their history is entwined with our own. 

With love and blessings,
