AARI

Ahavath Achim Refugee Initiative

The Ahavath Achim Refugee Initiative (AARI) was created by AA congregants who identify with the Jewish people’s historical experience as refugees from a variety of lands and as immigrants to the United States. Our mission is to recognize refugees in Atlanta who are innocent victims of war, famine, hate, or economic upheaval and offer them aid. Through advocacy, education, and direct services, we hope to emulate the words of Emma Lazarus inscribed on our Statue of Liberty: Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free… To participate, please contact Jill Rosner at 404.603.5741 or jrosner@aasynagogue.org, and let her know you are interested.
