Chief Rabbi and Valerie meet Syrian refugees with World Jewish Relief

Last week, the Chief Rabbi and Valerie visited World Jewish Relief’s work in Yorkshire, meeting refugees to discuss the challenges of integration and their aspirations, as part of #RefugeeWeek.

The Chief Rabbi commented: “It is humbling to listen to the remarkable positivity of people who have endured such enormous upheaval, and yet refuse to allow this to define their future. I am tremendously proud of the generosity of our community, which is helping the refugees to meet their needs so impressively. The response of World Jewish Relief to the refugee crisis, a major challenge of our time, has been exemplary.”
