Kudos to Temple Emanu-El

Kudos to Temple Emanu-El

I applaud Johanna Ginsberg for her excellent coverage of Temple Emanu-El’s Saturday morning Fun Club for refugees (“Welcoming the strangers,” March 21). As we approach the Passover season, we are all reminded that as a people we, too, were strangers in a foreign land.

So often we follow the media coverage of the plight of refugees and ask ourselves, “What can I do to help?” The temple’s Fun Club, in concert with two Westfield churches, supplies the answer. 

Mazal tov to Rabbis Doug Sagal and Ethan Prosnit, the temple’s board of trustees, and the many volunteers for sponsoring and implementing such an audacious and meaningful program.
