Supporting Afghanistan Refugees.

Bet Torah is one of three collection sites in Northern Westchester partnering with UJA, WJCI, and Upwardly Global to bring necessary goods to 10,000 Afghan refugees being housed in New Jersey at Fort Dix and Fort McGinty.

We will be collecting strollers (new or gently used) for families who received Special Immigrant Visa Status through the State Department. Help our allies resettle and welcome them with open arms.  We will also be collecting more items, including coats and shoes.
