Beth Ami Presents Refugee Shabbat Online, with a Guest from HIAS

Friday, February 2 | 6:00 – 7:30 PM MT | Online

After a brief Shabbat service, we will listen to a presentation from HIAS representative Beth Oppenheim about the organization and the work that they are currently engaged in.

Guided by the traditions, texts, and history of the Jewish people, HIAS (originally the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society) was founded over 100 years ago to support Jews fleeing persecution and poverty in Eastern Europe. Since then, HIAS has expanded to help generations of Jews and others of diverse faiths, ethnicities, and backgrounds facing violence across five continents to receive the services and opportunities needed to thrive.

Beth Ami Colorado Congregation for Humanistic Judaism is the only Humanistic Jewish congregation in Colorado and is a proud affiliate of the Society for Humanistic Judaism. We celebrate Jewish holidays, learning and life cycle events through the secular lens of history, culture, and reason. We believe in the human capacity to create a better world without supernatural intervention.

Beth Ami is a welcoming community where we connect to Jewish past, celebrate Jewish present and link to Jewish future through a humanistic philosophy. We encourage anyone interested in learning about Humanistic Judaism to attend this and all our events.

Let’s do Jewish together – Humanistically!
