Exodus and Modern Day Migration
04/05/2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
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!
