Our Values

Our values are based on the core Jewish belief of "welcoming the stranger" and tzedakah (generosity, charity and fairness). HIAS Pennsylvania believes in newcomers as an asset, not a burdern to the community.

We believe in the dignity of the individual. We believe in compassion, empathy, conscientiousness, tolerance, respect and commitment to a multicultural society.

  • Citizenship, refugee resettlement and other social services to assist newly arriving immigrants, refugees and those recently granted asylum
