Haim Mizrahi, immigrated from Egypt. He and his wife, Jodie, coordinate Beth Shalom’s involvement in providing housing and hospitality to asylum-seekers. UUC members Rick Beckel and Pam Smith Mentz have been involved with Beth Shalom launching their involvement, and Rick continues to offer accompaniment to two asylum-seekers hosted by a Beth Shalom family.
UUC’s Immigrant Justice Team has partnered with several other U-District congregations over the last two years, including Congregation Beth Shalom. We hope many from UUC will join us on April 13. If you have questions, or plan to join, contact Rick.
