Governor Beshear asked all houses of worship in Kentucky to cancel services this weekend, to stop the spread of the Coronavirus. In order to comply with the governor’s request, Adath Jeshurun is cancelling all worship services and programs this weekend, including the National Refugee Shabbat Potluck Dinner.

Join Jewish Family & Career Services and Adath Jeshurun in participating in National Refugee Shabbat on Friday, March 20th. 
We are witnesses to one of the largest humanitarian crises in human history. There are now more than 70 million people who have fled their homes due to persecution and violence. The involvement by the Jewish Community has made a huge difference, however, there's more to be done. Learn about these issues at National Refugee Shabbat hosted by JFCS and AJ.
