How should we treat the huge number of refugees streaming into Germany who have lost everything in ongoing wars? What is the correct balance of giving and taking? Over 100 guests of the German Friends attended a thought-provoking lecture by local rabbi Shlomo Raskin, who gave a rabbinical perspective on the many issues concerning refugees and foreigners. "The religious values are clear. We must show love and provide help to the needy," surmised Rabbi Raskin.

 

Participants were welcomed by German Friends President Uwe Becker and Vice Chairman of the Frankfurter Sparkasse Board of Directors Stephan Bruhn. The event was generously sponsored by the Frankfurter Sparkasse Bank.
