Supporting Afghan Evacuees in the Berkshires
Thousands of Afghan families and individuals are arriving in the United States after a perilous journey from Kabul. Over 1.000 will be arriving in Massachusetts. Jewish Family Service of Western Massachusetts (JFS) expects to take in 150 of these evacuees, including a group of 60 whom they anticipate resettling in Pittsfield within a few months.
As Jews, we know what it is like to be "the stranger." That is why we are sharing the information below from JFS on ways you can help.
