Refugee Shabbat: Shabbat Dinner

Friday, October 19, 2018 10 Cheshvan 5779

6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Hear Iraqi Refugee, Ahmed Badr a 20-year-old writer, social entrepreneur, poet, speaker - and former refugee about his personal experience. On July 25th, 2006, Ahmed's home in Baghdad was bombed by militia troops. He and his family relocated to Syria as refugees for two and a half years before receiving approval to move to the United States.

Struggling to understand and feel comfortable in his identity as a teenager, and as an Iraqi and fitting in as an American, Ahmed found strength and healing in writing. Feeling empowered through writing and telling his story, wanting to give other young people the same outlet, Ahmed founded Narratio, where young people from around the world submit stories, essays, and poems to share their experiences and express themselves - and by sharing their stories, bring people together.

We especially invite members of our teen community to come and hear Ahmed share the story of his experiences and how it shaped his identity.
