Sponsorship of a Syrian Refugee Family

Check out the latest update on the Alsahar family, the Syrian family in Lebanon being sponsored by the Shalom Group (representing our shul plus ORH and Adath Shalom). The situation really hasn’t changed: the family and all the volunteers and donors in Ottawa who have been involved so far continue to wait for the Government of Canada to process the family’s file…..but we also know that the situation for Syrian refugees in Lebanon is deteriorating. The latest political unrest will undoubtedly impact the refugees; winter has also set in, making lives considerably more miserable. We remain hopeful that we will get positive news soon. So does their Ottawa family, who were sponsored by Temple Israel a couple of years ago and who are featured in the Ottawa Jewish Bulletin this week (page 2).
