The L.I. Immigrant Experience at North Fork Reform Synagogue
North Fork Reform Synagogue,
On Saturday, November 10th, at 3:00 p.m. the North Fork Reform Synagogue (NFRS) presents a program about The Immigrant Experience
on the East End of Long Island. It is a video and discussion program with additional related print materials.
Speakers Sally Pope and Sylvia Baruch from NISI (Neighbors in Support of Immigrants), represent an ad hoc group
sympathetic to the difficulties faced by today’s immigrant communities. They believe that all people share a common humanity and that everyone
is entitled to just and humane treatment. Their purpose is to influence the debate on Immigration reform to spur local government to provide
services that will ease the immigrant acculturation to Long Island’s East End communities, and to make the East End a welcoming place for immigrants.
