 Jonas' Mitzvah Project:

The U.S.’s response to immigration is a huge problem right now. People are being separated from their families, are detained in harsh conditions, and are being deported where they will have to face whatever problems they were trying to leave by coming here.

Casa de Paz provides visits and emotional support, shelter and meals, access to phones, computers, and transportation to people who are released from ICE detention. Since starting in 2012, they have hosted over 2,800 immigrants from 73 countries and the need keeps growing. They also train volunteers to visit people being held in Aurora who may not have anyone to visit them for months or even years.

Message from Jonas:

I love how dedicated their staff and volunteers are to picking up people when they are released and spending hours of time with them making warm meals, providing clothes, and helping them. To support their work, my bar mitzvah project has several parts.

1. Get trained to visit someone in detention who needs human contact, or to support someone when they are released (often without notice and only with what they were wearing when they were picked up). Come to the volunteer training on Saturday, Feb 1 at Montview Presbyterian Church (1980 Dahlia St, Denver, 80220) from 12:45 - 3 pm. RSVP here for training. Trainings are the first Saturday of every month.

 2. You can buy something from their gift registry or volunteer to bring a meal by

 3. I will be accepting donations for Casa de Paz at my bar mitzvah on March 21 and would love to see more people get involved.
