Welcome the Stranger: Immigration in America Today
December 13, 2017
Rabbi Stephanie Kolin of Central Synagogue writes to Saint Peter's and other interfaith partners:

Join me on Wednesday, December 13th at 7 p.m. in the Main Sanctuary at Central Synagogue, as I moderate a top panel of experts who will draw upon a wealth of experience to discuss and help us grapple with the current state of immigration in our country. We will engage in a robust conversation and a Q&A session with the audience. Additionally, we will have the opportunity to hear from a young man currently navigating his way through the immigration system. At the end of the program, the Central in Action Immigration Team will share meaningful ways you can get involved in these critical issues in New York City.

Whether you have participated in a research meeting, helped guide our thinking in another setting, or simply raised your hand to indicate that this issue matters to you, we are grateful to be in this together. We hope you will join us in taking part in this important, ongoing conversation, as we explore ways to protect immigrants and make our immigration system more just and compassionate.
