Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus Initiative for Immigrant and Refugee Justice Action Center

Eighty years ago, Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus rescued 50 Jewish children from the Nazis. This new initiative seeks to galvanize action around the current crisis of immigrants and refugees held in detention and at risk of deportation.

Judaism teaches us that everyone is entitled to dignity and honor.
