Share Your Immigrant Stories!

On June 23, as part of the June for Justice Shabbats, the TBE Social Action committee will host a Refugee Shabbat honoring TBE’s work with Jewish Family Services and Jewish Congregations Organized for Resettlement (JCOR).

As part of this Shabbat service, we are asking congregants to share your immigration stories. What was it like to come to America? What were the joys and woes when you, your parents, or (great) grandparents first arrived? Is there a funny story to tell? A tragic story? Did coming here meet your (your family member’s) expectations? What did you/they wish you had known?

Your story should be short (no more than a typed page). Tell us where you/your family member came from and when they arrived here. We will read some of the stories scattered throughout the service and post all the stories we receive on our TBE website.

Send stories by JUNE 1 to: Ketl Freedman-Doan:

Don’t feel like writing? Give me a call and we can compose it together – I love a good story! 734 646-0864
