BHC Justice Havdalah
We are incredibly excited to announce The Family Diversity Art Project: Building Bridges will be at BHC from mid-January into early February. This moving art installation of photographs and interviews tells the stories of people who have come to the United States as immigrants and refugees from all over the world. Seeing their pictures and reading their stories we get a glimpse into their trials and triumphs as they make America their new home. Whether you are already coming to BHC or making a special trip, don’t miss this important and powerful display!
In conjunction with the Art Project, we are also thrilled to be hosting an immigration-focused Havdalah event on Saturday, February 1, 4-6 pm. We will be joined by three outstanding speakers: Baltimore City Councilman Zeke Cohen will tell the story of his family’s journey and its connection to the vibrancy brought by recent immigrants to Baltimore. Guiliana Valencia-Banks of the Esperanza Center will teach us about the current challenges facing those trying to navigate our immigration system, and Leslie Seid Margolis will tell us about her recent travels to the border to bear witness to the humanitarian crisis unfolding there. We will close with Havdalah.
