Resources for Parents

In times of turmoil and strife, it’s often our emotional well-being that bears the most significant burden. The conflict in Israel and Gaza, with its profound impact on countless lives, has left many individuals in our own community grappling with grief, loss, and emotional distress. Parents have an added burden of trying to help their children while dealing with their own emotions. Below are a list of resources we believe might be helpful. Remember, JFCS is available with trained therapists for a counseling session FREE OF CHARGE for anyone needing help processing this crisis.
