With 110 million forcibly displaced people worldwide—one of out every 74 individuals across humanity—the work of welcoming the stranger has never been more critical.

Join Jewish Family Service of San Diego (JFS) and the Center for Jewish Care for an insightful panel discussion on current immigration issues facing our community with our longtime immigration partner, HIAS.

From the Russian invasion of Ukraine to assaults on democracy and pluralism in the US, Israel, and Europe, to civil war in Sudan, HIAS works on multiple fronts alongside resettlement partners like JFS to do everything possible to welcome those seeking refuge.
