Don't close the door to refugees and immigrants
Tell President Donald Trump that Jews oppose his Executive Orders that effectively close our borders to refugees and Muslims, that mandate the construction of a border wall with Mexico, and that threaten cities that have declared themselves a sanctuary for immigrants.
The ancient rabbis taught that the sin of the city of Sodom, which God destroyed in the Torah, was that the residents banned foreigners, out of fear that these strangers would deplete the wealth of the city. Tell President Trump that the United States must not be like Sodom, but must live up to its history of welcoming refugees and immigrants, including our own families.
