HerTorah: “To A Place You Do Not Know”
Hosted By: SVIVAH
From the very beginning, the Jewish people are a nation of immigrants. Avraham and Sarah leave their homeland to journey to an unknown land. While their son Isaac is born in the Land of Israel, his wife Rebecca has an immigration story of her own.
Join us as we think about these stories of uprooting and re-rooting, in the Torah texts and our own lives. Guided by teachers Rabbi Katja Vehlow, Rabbi Tarlan Rabizadeh, and Maharat Miriam Gonczarska, we will explore the particular challenges and opportunities when making a home somewhere new. Leaders from HIAS and Shoshana Akabas from New Neighbors Partnership will also join us to help us understand more about the immigrant experience and speak about how we can help immigrants today.
