Speak Out for Refugees

Seeing children wrenched from the arms of parents is heartbreaking. Hadassah stands with the growing community — including many Jewish organizations — speaking out against the separation of children from migrant parents. As an organization dedicated to health, we are especially concerned by the long-term physical and emotional impact of separating children and parents.

We've heard their cries. As our voices join an unprecedented public outrage, we see hope for these families. Policymakers are starting to act. Help build the momentum to support refugees and the unification of families. Stand with Hadassah on World Refugee Day.

Act Now

Right now, it's important to take a moral stand. We encourage Hadassah units and members to join non-Shabbat rallies and marches — and use these downloadable Hadassah signs. As Jews we have a special understanding of the ethical imperative, especially on behalf of refugees seeking safe haven. Earlier this week, Hadassah joined 25 Jewish organizations in sending a letter to the U.S. Departments of Justice and Homeland Security. Now, we ask you to speak out and write to your legislators.

Thank you.
