Refugee Resettlement

Temple Isaiah spearheaded the concept of creating Welcome Groups to assist the case managers of the JFCS-East Bay in settling new refugees coming to our community. We now are proud to launch interfaith welcome groups, including congregants from LOPC and the San Ramon Valley Islamic Center. Our mission is to help these individuals and families get through the inevitable culture shock and create an entirely new life here. Many of us have heard family stories of how difficult this process was to our own ancestors. We are so very lucky to be able to offer assistance and comfort. What evolves is a deep and lasting friendship between the Welcome Group and the refugee family.  Extending help to strangers and newcomers is a deeply help Jewish value. Please join us.
