RefugeeOne & Refugee/Immigration Activities
Sinai Congregation strives to improve the quality of life of refugees in Chicago by partnering with RefugeeOne, an organization that creates opportunities for refugees fleeing war, terror, and persecution to build new lives of safety, dignity, and self-reliance. We are committed to help refugees 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
In 2016, we joined with RefugeeOne, a non-profit refugee resettlement agency that provides services to refugees and to volunteers. Every year, RefugeeOne assists over 2,500 refugees of all ages, ethnic groups, faiths, and backgrounds. With the influx of refugees from Ukraine, Afghanistan and Central American countries, the need has never been greater. There are many opportunities to help.
