Uplifting News From Madison’s Jewish Community

December 9, 2015

Too much dreadful news and hateful comments have dominated over the past weeks.  That is why this story made me proud to live in Madison and know that many share a common commitment to aid and comfort one another in times of need.

Congregation Shaarei Shamayim, Madison’s Jewish Reconstructionist and Renewal community, voice our support for settling Syrian refugees in Wisconsin, and are prepared to offer our homes and sponsorship to people seeking refuge from violence, terrorism, and tyranny. Our rabbi, Laurie Zimmerman, has joined over 1,000 rabbis in support of Syrian refugees. She has also been joined in our local community by clergy from other faiths who support helping these desperate people.
