Open Town Hall Meeting: Should Mount Zion Become a Sanctuary Congregation?

Thursday, August 24, 7 pm (Margolis Hall)

“When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall do him no wrong.
The stranger who sojourns with you shall be to you as the native,
and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.” – Leviticus 19:33 

Presentation and Open Discussion 

Hosted by Mount Zion’s Tzedek Committee
An additional open discussion will be on Friday, Aug 25 following Shabbat Services (approx. 7:15 pm)
All volunteers with our shelter (Project HOME) and the Garage Sale will be honored during the Aug 25 services.

Faith communities around the country are discussing their role in supporting and sheltering people who are facing deportation by ICE (US Immigration and Customs Enforcement). Our values may be clear (see Leviticus above), but the practical roles and responsibilities may not be. The Reform Movement has given guidance through a URJ Board Resolution in March (click here to read it.) Our Tzedek committee will host the Town Hall Meeting (and a briefer, alternate conversation on Shabbat) and a follow-up meeting on Monday, August 28 at 7 pm to draft a proposal to our Board. All are welcome. Please contact Deb Moses, Tzedek Committee chair with any feedback or questions. Feel free to contact our clergy with any feedback as well.
