We Were Strangers with Rabbi Fred Greene & Alejandro Fuentes-Mena
August 26 @ 7:00 pm
During this time, it is more important than ever that we reach out to neighbors and family and friends, as well as strangers who are vulnerable, and take care of one another. – Har HaShem
Rabbi Fred Greene at the Congregation Har HaShem on the Margolis Family Campus, will be reading aloud Alejandro Fuentes-Mena’s autobiographical story of hard work, familial love, and one man’s journey to becoming one of the first two DACAmented teachers in the country. The reading will be followed by both personal and theological reflections on the importance of sacred hospitality, and the impact of stepping into the shoes of an undocumented neighbor.
This performance is part of Motus Theater’s Shoebox Stories project and our We Were Strangers series – a collaboration with Jewish leaders who express moral courage and civic hospitality as they read aloud the story of an undocumented person and reflect both personally and theologically on seeing the world through the eyes of an immigrant.
Sponsored by Har HaShem.
Motus Theater is working creatively to meet the needs of people to connect meaningfully while honoring Safer-at-Home practices during the pandemic, and to find ways of reflecting on the ongoing challenges facing our community and democracy.
