Religious leaders urge NJ residents to welcome Syrian refugees ‘with hospitality’

As the debate continues in Washington over how to handle the influx of Syrian refugees into the United States, some New Jersey religious leaders are calling for re-settlement efforts in the Garden State to continue.

The topic was discussed during an interfaith roundtable organized by Congressman Frank Pallone on Monday, at the Reformed Church of Highland Park.

The pastor of the church, the Rev. Seth Kaper-Dale, who also heads up the Central Jersey Interfaith Refugee Resettlement Coalition of Highland Park and New Brunswick, said the next step in this process “is to continue to settle refugees lovingly and with great hospitality, we want the people who come into our state to feel loved upon entrance here.” read more.
