Kansas City Jewish Vocational Services Proudly Works To Settle Syrian Refugees
A running debate about charity vs. security in Kansas City seems to have been settled with this recent and thoughtful editorial. Checkit:
"As Jews, we have a special connection to the refugee program. Yes, in a religious sense, as we are called upon to welcome the stranger, to repair the world, but also in a historical sense. The United Nations High Commission on Refugees, which today governs the international refugee program, was founded in 1951 as a direct response to the experience of displaced European Jews. Its founders wanted to ensure that the world had a way to provide a chance at a safe and secure future to those who are persecuted and displaced by war.
JVS is proud to carry out this work, resettling refugees from Syria and 12 other countries . . ."
