Social Action

Welcome Corps Refugee Program

Members of the Pelham Jewish Center are preparing to sponsor a refugee family soon to be arriving to the United States. We will be participating in a new federal program called Welcome Corps and will operate in partnership with Hearts and Homes for Refugees, a Pelham volunteer-driven nonprofit that has been helping refugees settle in Westchester since 2016. We will support a refugee family with all aspects of resettlement and adjustment during their first three months in the country.

Please keep an eye out for more information regarding ways to get involved; there will be many opportunities to help.

PJC Library News

The Library is open.

New books can be found on the mantle. To check out a book, find the pocket with a card in the back. Write your name and the date you borrowed the book.

Please leave the card in the office upstairs. Return all borrowed books to the blue bin on the window ledge in the library. Do not shelve returned books. This will enable the librarians to keep books in circulation and keep track of who is borrowing our books.

Thank you for your cooperation. -- Barbara & Liz
