Our fourth and final group of videos from Welcoming Long Island’s groundbreaking interfaith event, Whoever Welcomes Children Welcomes Me. On Friday, Sept. 19, Welcoming Long Island partnered with Long Island Jobs with Justice to bring together the largest collection of faith leaders on Long Island. The event, part of National Welcoming Week 2014, called on the faithful and the faith community to treat children fleeing Central America and seeking refuge on Long Island with compassion and dignity.
Below are more of the faith community’s prayers and calls for welcoming the children.
David Newman, Jewish Community Relations Council of Long Island
