It’s not an easy road — but hope is the oxygen of my life. These insightful words of Meron Semedar, a refugee from Eritrea, reflect the feelings of the eleven men and women featured in this powerfully moving book by Rabbi Lee Bycel. These refugees share their extraordinary experiences of fleeing oppression, violence, and war in their home countries in search of a better life in the United States.
Rabbi Lee Bycel has made several humanitarian trips to Darfur and Chad and has visited South Sudan, Rwanda, Kenya, Ethiopia, and Haiti.
Admission is free and open to the public.
