Shabbat Worship Service "Understanding the Global Refugee Crisis"

Friday, October 26, 2018 • 17 Cheshvan 5779

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

At this special Shabbat, we're honored to welcome TBE member Professor Scott Straus, who will speak about the state of the world's refugees: How many people have been forcibly displaced from their homes? Where do they come from, and where are they today? He'll delve into the US refugee program, including its history and how it's currently shrinking. You'll also learn what you can do to help.

Scott Straus is Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor of Political Science and International Studies at UW-Madison. He specializes in the study of genocide, political violence, human rights, and African politics. He has authored many publications and sits on the board of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC.

The evening's Oneg Shabbat is sponsored by TBE Sisterhood and the Social Action Committee.
