A statement from JFCS

As an organization deeply rooted in humanity, empathy, and justice, we are deeply saddened by the pain and trauma our community, our country, and the world are experiencing at the hands of hate. JFCS is committed to all people regardless of religious faith and cultural background. All people deserve to live with dignity and purpose.

JFCS stands against antisemitism, islamophobia, and racism of all kinds. We see the pain our community is experiencing. We take this stand because we intimately understand trauma’s impact on every individual, and we are guided by our Jewish values to help heal pain and trauma.

JFCS stands where we always have – expanding possibilities for all!

JFCS is offering a complimentary counseling session to anyone experiencing grief and trauma due to the conflict in Israel and Gaza.

JFCS has experienced grief counselors available AT NO COST to help, regardless of faith or cultural background. We are here for YOU. Call: 502.452.6341 or email: Services@jfcslouisville.org

FOR PARENTS: We know it is hard to try to help children understand and cope while dealing with your own emotions. We have compiled a list of resources especially for you on how to talk to your children. Click here >
