This is Our Story.
It’s the story of us. The story of the refugee, the immigrant and the wanderer, is the story of the Jewish people, our people. Use these resources for your next chapter program to learn how you can be a gamechanger for those in need. Together we can make a difference.
The number of people displaced by violence and persecution has hit a record high. Now, millions of men, women and children face an uncertain road ahead. Learn from our partners at Repair the World how you can get involved in supporting refugees across the globe and create an environment of support and sustainability in your community and beyond.
