Immigrant Justice

JCUA advocates for the rights of immigrants

Jewish law demands that we treat the “stranger” with the utmost respect and dignity. The Torah reminds us dozens of times to treat the stranger well for “[we] were strangers in the land of Egypt.” For the past several years, immigration justice has been a focal point of our work at JCUA and we continue to stand with immigrant communities to demand a more just immigration system.
