The word Selah is undefined. Historians have tried to find a meaning, but the definition is as uncharted as a new country to an immigrant or refugee. While there is uncertainty in the definition, a possible translation is to lift up. The word may indicate a pause in a choral piece. There are many cultural barriers to a new country: language, transportation, and the building of new friendships. In moments of transition, it’s essential to take a pause. We must stand by our neighbors, to lift them up. Selah’s mission is to lift up immigrants, refugees, and under-resourced women through employment and profit-share to organizations which educate their children. In their employment, barriers are bridged and community is defined.
