Supporting Asylum Seekers

Congregation Shearith strives to be a community of Ahavat Chinam, love for the sake of love, love for the sake of understanding, love for the sake of lifting one another out of despair and doing the work of healing our wounds and our illness. 

Following our successful partnership with New American Pathways in 2017-2018, our Refugee Resettlement leadership has been seeking new ways to continue our efforts to make Atlanta a welcoming city.  Rabbi Kaiman created this opportunity for CSI to work together to make an impact to support those in our greater community who seek asylum.

when/where we meet:

TBD — this new initiative just launched at the Say Chai at CSI event on August 18!

what we do:

The current administration’s policies have created a situation where there are no new refugee families for us to welcome. We are exploring a partnership with New Sanctuary Movement of Atlanta to be part of a “cluster” of congregations in our area that supports asylees while they navigate our difficult and unwelcoming bureaucracy. 

how to get involved:

This is a brand new initiative which officially launched at the Say Chai at CSI event on August 18. 

Please stay tuned to the weekly eBlast for more information as we schedule an initial time for anyone who is interested to meet. To ensure you are added to our email list, please fill out the online interest form at www.shearithisrael.com/form/new-sanctuary-movement.
