Voices from Refugee Shabbat

In honor of Refugee Shabbat on February 2, 2024, we were so grateful to include the encouraging words of three of our immigrant friends who have won asylum in the past year.

Join us in celebrating the victories of Oleg, Shannoya, and Joshua, and listen to the messages they shared with us!
