Immigration and Sanctuary

Congregation Beth Shalom’s Immigration and Sanctuary sub-committee has been active since 2017 and works to effectuate the congregation’s sanctuary statement, making clear our commitment to supporting immigrants and refugees at risk from discriminatory practices. Our committee meets on the first Thursday of every other month.

Donate Sewing Machines for Our Newcomers Self-Empowerment Efforts

CBS partners with Jewish Family Services and the International Rescue Committee to assist resettling refugees in our area. Newcomers are starting sewing classes as a form of self-empowerment, and we would like to provide more sewing machines for our new neighbors.

Donate to incoming families by ordering directly from our wishlist items or by purchasing similar items (as those on the Amazon list) from other retailers and arranging for drop-off/delivery (contact Marla for arrangements).
