Travel to the U.S.-Mexico border with Rodef Sholom and BorderLinks
In 2017, Rodef Sholom delcared itsef a sanctuary synagogue. In order to increase our understanding of borders, U.S. policies, and migrant rights, we are taking an educational trip to the U.S.-Mexico border with BorderLinks February 1 - 4, 2019. For more than 30 years, Borderlinks has served as the educational arm to the sanctuary movement, facilitating educational immersion trips for delgations in the Arizona-Sonora region and beyond the border to Chiapas. We will deepen our understanding of border history and immigrant justice, and spend time reflecting on how we show up as Jewish allies and advocates. If you're interested in the conversation about immigrant rights, this trip is for you, regardless of experience.
