At 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 22, Rachie Lewis, the Director of Synagogue Organizing with JCRC, will be speaking at TBA about issues immigrants are facing in the Boston area and ways we might help.  Rachie has worked with 18 local synagogues to organize their immigration justice programs, with the first step being to learn about what's happening in our own community.  Rachie will provide much useful and enlightening information, so please come even if you do not think you will be able to participate in any volunteer opportunities following her presentation!
