Immigration Day of Learning

Hosted by Temple Isaiah (along with RAC-CA, JCRC, JFCS, Stand Together! and Under One Tent)

An Afternoon of Learning & Commitment to the Establishment of Humane Immigration Policies

Sunday, March 24 from 1:30 – 5 pm

Temple Isaiah Social Hall, 945 Risa Road, Lafayette

For Jews, the issue of immigration reminds of us of our history seeking refuge as a wandering and oppressed people. The most commonly repeated commandment in the entire Torah is to love the stranger because we were strangers in the land of Egypt. Jewish tradition demands that we prioritize the needs of immigrants, welcoming and helping them when we can, balanced with the needs for security and safety in our own nation.
