Welcoming the Stranger: GRJC's Efforts to Support Refugees
 
The GRJC is proud to be a Welcome Campaign Congregation through HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society). As part of this partnership, we seek to find ways of fulfilling the mitzvah of "welcoming the stranger" by supporting refugees and asylum seekers in pursuit of a dream for a better life. Please take part in one or more of the following efforts.
