There will be a presentation, on behalf of the Beth Emet volunteer committee, about their experiences supporting and working with an Afghan Refugee family here in Chicago. The family arrived in January and is living in Skokie. They are a family of six, two parents and four kids age 7, 5, 3, and 18 months. (The attached photo is of a traditional lunch that the family has made for the volunteer committee!) It has been a profound and powerful experience – and one we look forward to talking about!
In addition, our Director of Youth Engagement and four teens who have participated in Shoulder to Shoulder, an online training program for future immigration justice advocates, will be weaving words of introduction to some prayers throughout our Shabbat service.
