Sukkat Shalom Afghan Families

Sukkat Shalom (Shelter of Peace) is one of our community’s most significant efforts to turn outward by supporting refugees and migrants. We are all watching the news from Afghanistan with deep distress. We worry about the safety and future of ALL Afghans as the Taliban takes control of their homeland.  

Members of the Micah community have been reaching out to Sukkat Shalom, asking how they can help, and specifically asking about the Afghan family that Temple Micah helped resettle in 2017. We have been in active communication with the family, and have been working to support them and their loved ones in Afghanistan in any way we can.

Given the situation in Afghanistan and the ongoing immigration crisis at the U.S./Mexico border -- another immediate priority for Sukkat Shalom -- the work of Sukkat Shalom has never been more urgent. We invite you to join us in this important work.

We do this work because of who we are, what we believe, and the way we understand ourselves. Our Jewish story is a refugee story, from the Torah to our own personal ancestry. Sukkat Shalom is our way of opening the door so “all who are hungry may come and eat.”

Thank you for your generosity and support.
