6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Please join us for a conversation with our special guests Abdullah Hazrati and his wife Sophia Zekria, our first refugee family from Afghanistan in San Luis Obispo. Abdullah and Sophia will share their experience in Kabul, their journey to SLO, and the realities of life as a refugee. Abdullah works at Shalimar restaurant and we will have appetizers from there to support them. Sophia, a baker, will also bring a special treat. Following our conversation at 7pm we will participate in HIAS Refugee Shabbat, a national program to highlight our commitment to refugees then and now. If you would like to participate in a reading or prayer in this program please contact the office. Our conversation will be facilitated by our congregant Susan Dressler.
