Repair the World in partnership with HIAS has launched #SupportforRefugees. From April 15 – 30, Repair will direct #SupportforRefugees to build awareness, foster dialogue, and inspire action to provide sorely needed support to newly resettled refugees. As part of #SupportforRefugees, Repair the World’s ongoing Turn The Tables initiative also offers resources to facilitate substantive questions and dialogue on this issue within a Jewish framework during a Seder or Shabbat dinner.
Repair the World Movement Leaders are organizing volunteer projects with organizations that provide essential services like access to food, education, housing, job training, English language tutoring, or after school care. Strengthening these systems benefits everyone in communities, including refugees and others who are most vulnerable.
Repair anticipates over 100 Turn the Tables meals to spur conversation and action in support of refugees. Thousands of young adults are expected to participate in some way throughout the two week initiative. Individuals interested in participating in any part of the initiative can get more information and can sign-up at www.werepair.org/passover.
