RJC, Bill Evertsberg, and Refugee One

Written by: Julia Smolucha

Arameans & Americans

A wandering Aramean was my ancestor; he went down into Egypt and lived there as an alien, few in number, and there he became a great nation, mighty and populous.  Deuteronomy 26:5

Moses gave this core credo to the Israelites in the wilderness, just before entering The Promised Land, to remind them where they came from. Every American is also, spiritually, a wandering Aramean. Please join us for three evenings of lessons and question & answer sessions from speakers with years of experience in the fields of healing communities and resettling refugees.
