Afghan Family Support: Jewish Family & Community Support/ JFCS has asked us to Sponsor a Family who will arrive on October 15. There are special needs for this family of 8 people who will live in Antioch. A dozen people joined our Afghan Committee last Sunday to learn the initial information we have received. All present agreed we want to move ahead in sponsoring this family. 4 Things we know at this point: A Case Manager will be assigned by JFCS; all communications and intentions must pass through Sara; as the Peace Community we will organize ourselves in the best possible way to work in sync with the Case Manager and meet the family’s needs (we don’t know their names yet); and when appropriate we will incorporate friends from other congregations. To prepare yourself for their arrival in one week, please watch this video which provides a compassionate context for welcoming Immigrant and Refugee Families. It was produced by our LIRS.
