Immigration Speaker for BAS Teens and Adults

All BAS teens and adults are invited to hear an immigration story from Reshad Ahmadi, whose family was recently resettled in White Plains from Afghanistan with the help of HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society) and the JCC of Harrison.

In addition, Laura Solomon, Chair of the Tikkun Olam Chevra, will share an update about the Afghani family that BAS and Woodlands is helping to resettle in White Plains.

Reshad was an Afghan consultant and engineer on a U.S. military base near Kabul, Afghanistan. For this work, he received a special immigrant visa (SIV) that allowed him to bring his wife and two children to the United States about a year and a half ago. Reshad works as an engineer in Queens and his children attend White Plains public schools. His wife is currently looking for work as a chemical engineer, for which she earned a degree in Afghanistan.

This program replaces regular classes for our 7th-12th grade students on 2/11.  They will have pizza dinner as usual at 6pm.

For more information or to RSVP for this event, please contact Laura Solomon or Abby Reiken.
