Infiltrators or Refugees? A Presentation and Discussion about Asylum Seekers in Modern Day Israel
Please join HIAS, Right Now: Advocates for African Asylum Seekers in Israel, New Israel Fund, T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights (formerly known as Rabbis for Human Rights-North America), National Council of Jewish Women/LA, and IKAR for a discussion about asylum seekers in Israel—who they are, how the Jewish state is responding, and how American Jewish communities can get involved.
The event will feature a short documentary film by Kady Buchanan in association with her full length documentary, Exile No More, as well as remarks from experts Mark Hetfield, HIAS’ President and CEO (interim), and Maya Paley, co-founder of Right Now. Presentations will be followed by a Q&A session. Kosher-style refreshments will be provided.
The event is on Sunday, January 27, 2013 from 5-7 pm and will take place at the NCJW/LA Auditorium (543 N. Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90036). This event is free and is not a fundraiser.
