Refugees & Immigration

Temple Shalom has an ongoing commitment to refugee and immigration concerns. The Tikkun Olam committee addresses this critical issue within the congregation and provides ongoing support for refugee families through relationships with other organizations including HIAS, Lutheran Social Services of the National Capital Area (LSS), and International Rescue Committee (IRC).

Activities include assisting with furnishing apartments, holding drives for critically needed supplies, sponsoring a refugee family, and participating in efforts to advocate for refugees and immigrants.

We invite you to join the Temple Shalom Tikkun Olam Committee.  Contact Tikkun Olam Chairs Sara Nathan and Betsy Kingery at for more information or to offer your assistance.
