St. JME Lutheran Church in Brooklyn sponsors an annual Christmas tree sale/fundraiser. GA has purchased our trees through them for several years. This year’s proceeds will go to HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society). This organization provides refugee resettlement for people all over the globe, Jewish and otherwise. They were the organization that was specifically mentioned by the man who attacked the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. This becomes yet another way of building stronger connections with our Jewish siblings.
