Do you know anyone who has recently sought asylum in Australia? Do you really know their story? We invite you to hear from Zaki, who belongs to the Hazara people, a persecuted ethnic minority group in Afghanistan. He was just 17 when he fled, arriving in Australia by boat. Together, we will reflect on the Jewish values which might be relevant to this issue, and we'll evaluate responses — including our own — to the current situation faced by people seeking asylum in Australia.
