49] – HIAS [info@hias.org] wants you to know about an event on Wed., Oct. 12 from noon to 1 PM ET -- Providing Shelter: HIAS’ international response to the Ukraine refugee crisis. Sukkot is a reminder of the Jewish people’s history of wandering and exile. Sukkot is also an important expression of solidarity with the more than 100 million people around the world who are currently displaced from their homes and communities. More than 10 million of those displaced persons left Ukraine in Spring 2022, in what was the fastest-growing refugee crisis since World War II. In response, HIAS has created a Ukrainian Welcome Circles program — coaching and supporting groups of community groups across Europe and the United States in taking on the difficult but rewarding task of settling and integrating Ukrainian newcomers. Hear from a Welcome Circle coordinator in Belgium, as well as HIAS professionals in the U.S. and Europe who built the Welcome Circle program.  RSVP at https://www.hias.org/events/providing-shelter-hias-international-response-ukraine-refugee-crisis?utm_medium=email&utm_source=hias.org&utm_campaign=220929_CENewsletter&utm_content=221007+CEMultiEvent+e2.
