JFS CARES ABOUT YOU

Our vision is that no one in our community should suffer hunger, isolation, abandonment, emotional or physical distress, or lack of community support and caring.

PART II: A CONVERSATION ABOUT BEING JEWISH

IN A POST-OCTOBER 7TH WORLD

This is an opportunity to reflect on what it feels like to be Jewish in these complicated times. Facilitators of this interactive program will include professionals from the JFS Clinical Committee and Resilient Lehigh Valley. The program is a continuation of the Maimonides Society’s Super Sunday presentation on the history of intergenerational trauma.
