Over one hundred years ago, the Jewish community founded HIAS
(originally the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society) in New York City, the
immigrant gateway to America. Supporting Jews fleeing persecution
and poverty in Eastern Europe, our founders were guided by the
traditions, texts and history of the Jewish people—a history of
oppression, displacement and diaspora. HIAS has since helped
generations of Jews facing violence because of who they were, and
HIAS remains committed to helping Jewish refugees anywhere in the
world. Today, our clients at HIAS come from diverse faiths,
ethnicities and backgrounds, as do our staff. We bring our
experience, history and values to our work across five continents,
ensuring that refugees today receive the vital services and
opportunities they need to thrive.
