In September 2021, a small group of individuals met to begin conversations about how those on the North Shore of Long Island could be supportive of the effort to resettle some of the Afghan refugees in our area. We developed a coalition comprised of our synagogue, the Islamic Center of Long Island, Temple Sinai (Roslyn), Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Shelter Rock, UJA-Federation of New York and the American Jewish Committee-Long Island to support this effort of resettlement called Upholding Humanity.

This group is actively involved with refugee resettlement for ten refugee families - from Afghanistan, Central America and Ukraine. We are asking for your support in two ways:

To raise funds to support refugee families. These funds will also support the work of our committees in acclimating these refugees to life in the United States, including supplementing food in the early months, helping with winter clothing, and providing other necessities. 

Additionally, we seek volunteers to be part of a "Welcome Circle" to actively support our newest families coming in from Ukraine. Volunteers are needed for 5 hours (or more) per week, to help in a variety of areas listed in the form linked here

Thank you for whatever you can do, for as we learn in the Talmud, “one who saves a single life, saves a world.”
