World Jewish Relief Emergency Appeal 

This week World Jewish Relief launched an emergency appeal to help people being forced to flee Afghanistan. 
Judaism teaches us not to stand idly in the face of suffering and injustice, and our community’s history reminds us why this is so important. World Jewish Relief was founded to help refugees in the 1930s and 40s because they were Jewish; we help refugees today because we are Jewish.
