Afghan Family Resettlement at CDT

 

Overview

Many Afghans had to flee their country on short notice and are now arriving in the Boston area. The Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) and Catholic Charities are working with area mosques, churches, and synagogues to support a resettlement effort. CDT has come forward to help the resettlement of an Afghan family. 

Supporting an Afghan family aligns with our core values at CDT.  We could not support this family without the support of you, our kehillah (community).  We embody chesed (lovingkindness), offering emotional and physical support to a family who has gone through major trauma.  It is a mitzvah, connecting us not only to each other, but also acknowledging our connection to those outside our immediate community.  And finally, it is an opportunity for our youth in our religious school to collaborate with the larger community in this act of tikkun olam (repair of the world).  Supporting an Afghan family is a concrete way we can live out our responsibility to our broader community.

The family of four arrived in Boston on December 21st and are settling into their new home, with the incredible support of our greeter team of four, as well as a case manager from Catholic Charities. For reasons of safety we can not share any identifying information about the family. Please read the 'Family's Safety' on the right sidebar of this page for more information in this regard. Thank you to all of you who have made this effort possible; this could never have been realized without the gracious support of the CDT and HBT communities.
