Two Immigration Committee Events

Putting our Bodies on the Line
Matthew Leber Reports Back from the Border 
3:30-5pm in the Sanctuary
Matthew Leber, Kehilla member and staff member of American Friends Service Committee helped organize the December 10th action at the San Diego Border that The Nation Magazine called “Best Action of 2018.”  We will hear from Matthew about his 24-hour experience in border patrol detention and from other Kehilla members who participated in the action. We will share song and prayer and will discuss of the role of direct action in supporting immigrant justice.

Meet and Greet and Light Dinner
5:00-6:45pm in the Social Hall
Join us to welcome new immigrants who have been part of our accompaniment program over the past several years, along with their teams, hosts and sponsors. (There are now several newborn babies to celebrate among these families.)   Main course will be provided.  Please bring a vegetarian side dish, salad or dessert.  Label with ingredients if possible
