Clayborn Temple is proud to sponsor The Power of the Collective event series, hosted by the Memphis Jewish Community Center. All events are free and open to the public, but registration is requested.

The MJCC is inspired by the ideal that there is power in the collective and as such facilitated bringing together a broad group  of organizations from throughout the Memphis area to create a celebration and exploration of exacting social change. We are thrilled to present “The Power of the Collective” during the month of April and are committed to making all these programs free of charge and open to the entire Memphis community.

This is Home is an intimate portrait of four Syrian refugee families arriving in America and struggling to find their footing. Displaced from their homes and separated from loved ones, they are given eight months of assistance from the International Rescue Committee to become self-sufficient. As they learn to adapt to challenges, including the newly imposed travel ban, their strength and resilience are tested.

It is a universal story, highlighted by humor and heartbreak, about what it’s like to start over, no matter the obstacles.
