UJF "Welcoming The Stranger: Past and Present"

7:30PM - 9:30PM  

 

WELCOMING THE STRANGER:
PAST AND PRESENT

The Jewish holiday of Sukkot is celebrated by spending time in small, temporary huts. These huts, also called Sukkot, are reminders of the temporary dwellings the Israelites lived in during their journey from Egypt to the Promised Land of Israel. There is also a tradition of inviting guests into our Sukkot to share our shelter with them.

As we enter the holiday of Sukkot, join us to talk and learn about people who may not have had shelter whom we can welcome into our community.

When: Monday, October 2nd
7:30 p.m.
Where: Building One Community
75 Selleck Street
Stamford, CT

Cost: $10 per person

Hear from Jewish immigrants from the Former Soviet Union who remade their lives in Stamford in the 1990s, and from immigrants from around the world doing the same today – and learn what we, in Stamford, have done and can do to welcome them here.
