THE STORY:

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society Of Chicago wrote -

Today, more than 65 million people are displaced around the world; of those over 20 million are refugees. As Jews, we are uniquely positioned to respond to this crisis as we have an acute understanding of what it means to be forced to flee our homes; to be strangers in a new land.

And so this Chanukah, inspired by our commitment to be a light unto the nations, let our Jewish community come together to welcome and support today's refugees arriving in Chicago. Let us shed light for some of the most vulnerable among us and send the important message of: "we're glad you're here."

Dollars raised will enable HIAS Chicago, a program of Jewish Child & Family Services, to support refugee families from West Africa, the Middle East and Eastern Europe as they resettle and rebuild their lives in Chicago. Specifically, funds will pay for families' first months of rent, furnishings and clothing - all necessities that families arrive in Chicago without.

Questions? Contact Jessica Schaffer, HIAS Chicago Director, at JessicaSchaffer@jcfs.org. Thank you for being a partner in this important work.
