Los Angeles Jewish Community Unites in Support of Refugees

By Gabe Cahn, HIAS.org

As the Trump Administration welcomes an historically low number of refugees into the United States, a coalition of over 30 Jewish congregations and organizations gathered on Thursday, March 22 in Los Angeles for a community-wide show of support for refugees.

The LA Jews for Refugees Assembly was convened by HIAS in partnership with the emerging Los Angeles Jews for Refugees Coalition, and brought together more than 150 people at Temple Beth Am to call on the administration to meet its obligations to protect individuals fleeing persecution and violence.
