The Syrian Refugee Crisis - Their Agony, Our Conscience: A Conversation with Leon Wieseltier

By The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center (other events)

Monday, November 6 2017 7:00 PM 8:30 PM

The Syrian catastrophe is the greatest humanitarian disaster of our time. We have a duty to hear its victims and to act on what they tell us. In a wide-ranging discussion, a group of Syrian survivors and refugees will offer their memories and their reflections. Leon Wieseltier, who has worked with them in their cause for years, will draw out the moral implications of their experiences for Jews and all Americans. What can we do? What must we do?

Leon Wieseltier, the noted writer and thinker, is the editor of Idea and the author of Kaddish. He has published and lectured widely on the Syrian crisis and the obligations of rescue and refuge.
