If you missed the exhibit at the University of Pennsylvania last year this is your second chance to see this art exhibit which movingly tells the stories of Mexican immigrant children living in Philadelphia. The art project was facilitated by Nora Litz and our partners at Puentes De Salud. The art work and narratives that accompany them, prepared by the students themselves, help us understand the journey that these courageous children have undertaken.

Supreme Court’s Arizona Immigration Decision Supports Federal Authority in Immigration But Potential for Racial Profiling Remains
A Joint Statement from HIAS Pennsylvania and the Jewish Community Relations Council on Behalf of the Greater Philadelphia Jewish Coalition on Immigration
Next week the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments regarding the constitutionality of Arizona's immigration enforcement law SB 1070.

HIAS Pennsylvania stands strongly opposed to these attacks on immigrants which violate the core Jewish teaching of ‘Welcoming the Stranger’.
The Lautenberg Amendment, which helps persecuted religious minorities fleeing Iran and the former Soviet Union, expired on June 1, 2011. The provision must be renewed each year.
