National Refugee Shabbat Interfaith Havdallah

Saturday, October 20, 2018 • 11 Cheshvan 5779

6:30 PM - 8:00 PMSt. Paul St Andrew Church 86th & West End Avenue

Several Churches in our neighborhood provide sanctuary to people facing immediate deportation. As part of National Refugee Shabbat, seven Upper West Side synagogues that are members of the Synagogue Coalition for the Refugee and Immigration Crisis are joining to host an Interfaith Havdallah. We’ll hear from SPSA Senior Pastor K Karpen about their work as a Sanctuary congregation and from Debora Barrios about her experience in sanctuary at the Church, and from Mark Hetfield the President and CEO of HIAS. We will join in song and hear from others about how we can support those in sanctuary in our own community.

Hazzan Hirschhorn will lead Havdalah and inspire us with music. We’ll also hear from others about how we can support those in sanctuary and have time for refreshments and conversation with our neighbors.

Sorry, Registration has ended.
