Exodus and Modern Day Migration
04/05/2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm CDT
At Passover, we remind ourselves of the ancient story of the Israelites’ exodus to freedom, so that we will speak out when we see pain and injustice. The Torah describes a mixed multitude leaving Egypt – not just the Israelites, but all people who sought freedom from oppression.
What is the modern day migration story? Join the Chicago Jews for Refugees Coalition and HIAS for a film watch of “La Historia de Mateo” (the story of Mateo), a documentary about family separation at the US-Mexico border followed by a discussion of the impact of family separation policies on Latino communities. If you’re interested in getting involved in immigration advocacy and refugee resettlement, this program is for you!
