HIAS Refugee Shabbat

The URJ is a co-sponsor of HIAS’ Refugee Shabbat, during which Jews in the United States and around the world take action for refugees. We are witnessing one of the largest humanitarian crises in human history, with more than 80 million people worldwide fleeing their homes due to persecution and violence. Over Shabbat on March 5-6, 2021, the Jewish community will dedicate sacred time and space to refugees and asylum seekers.
