Temple Shalom Refugee Humanitarian Project: “You too must befriend the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.” Deuteronomy 10.19
There are currently over 65 million displaced people worldwide calling out for a safe and secure place to live. This year at Temple Shalom we are heeding the call with a commitment to provide housing for two refugee families for a year. This is an enormous task that will require many hearts and hands. If you are interested in learning more about the project or how you can help, please contact Refugee Humanitarian Project.
