I, Too, Am an Immigrant

By Steven S. Foldes

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), April 2007

An immigrant from Hungary to the U.S. at the age of seven, the author describes the alliances he built through his synagogue's social justice committee to advocate on behalf of undocumented workers, a task that gave new meaning to the congregation's mission of tikkun olam (repairing the world). He emphasizes that we must organize and make alliances, and care for the undocumented as well as the documented.
