On Friday February 3 at 6:15 PM, we will observe HIAS Refugee Shabbat with special guest speaker Rabbi Megan Doherty, Senior Educator at HIAS.

Founded as the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society in 1881 to assist Jews fleeing pogroms in Russia and Eastern Europe, HIAS has touched the life of nearly every Jewish family in America and now welcomes all who have fled persecution. We are grateful for the invaluable help from HIAS staff as they facilitated our sponsorship of Pavel and Hanna’s family this year. Our guest speaker, Rabbi Megan Doherty, has deep ties to Seattle and TBA; she grew up here and her parents are active members of TBA.
