Hosted by JFCS in partnership with Jewish Federation and Foundation of Northeast Florida.

The purpose of this event is to give Jewish parents and their kids tools in their toolbox on how to respond when confronted with antisemitism. We will have clinical counselors on hand to work with parents and kids, lead a guided discussion, and answer questions.

The first 20 families to RSVP will have access to this event. Others will be added to a waitlist. If there is enough interest, we will offer more of these events to allow as many families as possible to participate.

To RSVP email
** Please include your name, and the names and ages of the children who will be attending.

“I came to JFCS because I didn’t know what else to do. I was on the brink of homelessness and they provided financial assistance with my rent and electricity. I don’t know what I would have done without their help.”

Social services for Jewish Nazi victims have been supported by a grant from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.
