Join us in sponsoring a Refugee Family!
Sinai Congregation is committed to
help a refugee family become independent, self-supporting members of their new Chicago community. It is an opportunity to truly live the words of our faith,
"You shall also love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt." Deuteronomy 10:19
We are partnering with RefugeeOne, a non-profit refugee resettlement agency that provides services to refugees and to volunteers. Every year RefugeeOne assists about 2,500 refugees of all ages, ethnic groups,
faiths and backgrounds.
The need is great, and there are many opportunities to help:
- Please click here to contribute. We need to raise money to support the refugee family and to fund activities we would do together in 2017. Contributions at any level are welcome.
- Sign up to provide or purchase household items. We need 80+ items, large and small, to set up the family’s apartment before they arrive.
- Click here to volunteer your time.We need volunteers to lead teams, welcome the family at the airport, take family members shopping, tutor, mentor and more.
