The Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan will screen the documentary This Is Home: A Refugee Story on February 19 at 7pm. This film is an intimate portrait of four Syrian refugee families arriving in America and struggling to find their footing. With only eight months of help from the International Rescue Committee to become self-sufficient, they must forge ahead to rebuild their lives in a new home: Baltimore, Maryland. They attend cultural orientation classes and job training sessions where they must "learn America" -- everything from how to take public transportation to negotiating new gender roles.

This Is Home goes beyond the statistics, headlines, and political rhetoric to tell deeply personal stories, putting a human face on the global refugee crisis. 

This Is Home
Winner of Audience Award: World Cinema Documentary - Sundance Film Festival 2018
Official Selection - Full Frame Documentary Festival 2018

After the viewing of the documentary, there will be a question-and-answer period.
