Welcoming Refugees

A documentary about a refugee story that came full circle: Tina Grimberg fled Ukraine as a teenager more than three decades ago. Now she's a rabbi whose congregation is welcoming a family from Syria. Plus a conversation with Parker Palmer about entitlement, Trump, and breaking down walls.

We go inside the refugee experience through two women's stories, then zoom out and examine what might make us more or less welcoming to strangers.
