Panim Hadashot-New Faces is a unique organization in the Jewish community that is focused on revitalizing Jewish hospitality traditions. We believe that hospitality is not only a critical spiritual practice. It also has important ethical implications on how we treat the stranger. As leader of Panim Hadashot, I feel moved to react with alarm and concern to this week's Executive Orders on Immigration.
I have signed onto to a statement which I have appended below which clearly states my objection to these orders and deep concern for the impact these orders will have on millions of people and the reputation of the United States around the world. Please join me in objecting to the emerging policy on immigration by the new administration.
