Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
HIAS Pennsylvania provides legal and supportive services to immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers from all backgrounds in order to assure their fair treatment and full integration into American society.
HIAS Pennsylvania advocates for just and inclusive public policies and practices.
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.
