Immigration

TBE Immigration Justice Initiative

Out of the 4/28/2018 Shabbat Lunch Conversation on Immigration, we formed the TBE Immigration Justice Initiative. We are a group of TBE members who are passionate about immigration, and seek to affect change both locally and nationally around this issue. Called by our tradition, which commands us help the stranger, we refuse to stand idly by as we hear and see the plight of the stranger in our midst. We have identified specific areas of action through which we can make a difference: Tzedakah and Drives, Rallies/Protests, Accompaniment, Direct Support, Sanctuary, Advocacy and Learning/Reflection. See below for more information on how you can join us in this effort to repair our world.

Join us for a concert with support from JCRC to benefit the Boston Immigrant Justice Accompaniment Network (BEYOND) with all proceeds used to help our immigrant neighbors in ICE detention post bond so they can reunite with their families while awaiting asylum hearings.  This concert is made possible through the generous donations of several TBE families.
