What's new?  We are excited to announce a new NSCI call to action! Once again, with the assistance of RefugeeOne, an approved UN Refugee Agency, we will help to settle a second refugee family with the goal that they will be self-reliant 6-8 months after their arrival.  Scroll down to see how you can help!

Refugee Resettlement Project 

It’s time to take action: We’ve been patiently waiting and are excited to announce that NSCI has been matched with another refugee family. We look forward to welcoming them to Chicago on Wednesday, January 8.


Our new family is a Burmese Muslim family with 2 young sons (8 months and 5 years old) who fled Burma due to violence, ethnic cleansing and mass executions. They have been living in Malaysia (father since 2001, mother since 2012). They are but a few of the 70 million refugees in limbo around the world, many of whom live in a temporary camp on the average of 17 years. Yes, 17 years.

 

Greet the Family at O’Hare!

Please join us on Wednesday, January 8 at 3:45 pm at Chicago O’Hare International Airport, Terminal 5, (arrivals exit A) to welcome the family after they arrive and clear security. You can make welcome signs and bring flowers and balloons. Please email Rabbi Ryan Daniels at rabbidaniels@nsci.org if you will be joining us.
