This panel of five ACJC academics will offer diverse views on the topical issue of refugees from multi-disciplinary perspectives. In an age of mass global movement, what does the Jewish experience through history have to contribute to the contemporary discussion about refugees? How do Jewish texts – rabbinic, philosophical, literary – add to our understanding of refugees, migrants and asylum seekers? Each panelist will speak for ten minutes followed by questions and a moderated discussion.
