To renew our shared commitment to the values upon which Micah members launched Sukkat Shalom (“a shelter of peace”) and to mark the festival of Sukkot, we’re excited to host Seeking Shelter: Stories from the Border.
A short film presentation on Uncaged Art, an exhibit of artwork created by “unaccompanied minors”—migrant children formerly interned at a detention camp in Tornillo, Texas. Temple Micah’s own Jen Oko interviewed people involved in creating and exhibiting this powerful art project, and this is the first time the short film will be shown. We had hoped to bring the actual exhibit to Micah last spring until the pandemic forced other plans.
Remarks from Sue Kenney-Pfalzer, director of the Border & Asylum Network at HIAS. Sue will share the critical work HIAS is doing to provide legal representation to migrants at the U.S. southern border. Sukkat Shalom has been proud to support HIAS’s work this year.
We’ll follow with a discussion about the most urgent ongoing challenges facing migrants and refugees, and learn what more we can do to help.
Please let us know if you plan to attend by emailing Sukkah Shalom to obtain the Zoom link to this timely event.
