A Message from F. Murray Abraham

November 9, 2018


Our Shared Humanity...


My father's parents came to America in the 1920s because there was a famine in Syria.


America saved their lives — it’s as simple as that. And for that, I am deeply grateful.


Now, I constantly balance my good fortune against the darkness I see in my grandparents’ war-torn homeland. The numbers are staggering – an estimated 500,000 killed; 13 million people trapped in besieged and hard to reach areas; and 6.6 million have been forced from their homes.


The Syrian people desperately need our help. Facing the Assad Regime, and Russia and Iranian-backed forces, their needs grow ever more intense.


This is why I support the Multifaith Alliance for Syrian Refugees (MFA).


MFA is a coalition of 100 Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Sikh and secular organizations. In the past two years, it has delivered over $120 million of relief, including medicines, hospital equipment, food, clothing, water filtration systems. MFA has supported hospitals, established family and maternity clinics, built a baking facility – and supplied it with 80 tons of flour.


Join me in the effort to continue this work. Your contribution of $25, $50, $100 – or whatever amount you can afford – will make a difference. By helping, we demonstrate the best of American values. It is our shared humanity that will triumph.

In hope,








F. Murray Abraham
