Thompson performed with Montclair singer/songwriter Zara Phillips Saturday night at Bnai Keshet Synagogue. The event benefitted First Friends of New Jersey and New York, an organization dedicated to upholding the inherent dignity and humanity of detained immigrants and asylum seekers. The organization promotes compassion and hope through volunteer visitation, resettlement assistance and advocacy.
