JFS first met Abdulkader when he and his family fled violence in Syria and resettled in the U.S. in 2017. Through the JFS Syrian Refugee Humanitarian Project, JFS welcomed the Hayani family and supported them in creating a new future in which their children could grow and thrive.
Today, the Hayani family is indeed thriving, contributing to their community, and giving back in service to others.
Register today for this inspirational event and join us as we congratulate Abdulkader on this special honor!

In May 2020, Abdulkader was also featured in a Boston Globe Article, “Repaying a kindness: Resettled Syrian tailor shares mask-making skills with those who guided him to safety” by Jenna Russell (photos by Suzanne Kreiter/Globe Staff). Check out this story and others about
