Congregation Beth Israel

The recent terrorist attack on Israel, the ongoing Israeli-Hamas War, and the rise
of antisemitism on college campuses and within local communities has been
unsettling for Jews around the globe.
Jewish Family Services has developed a support group, “Support for Difficult Times,” a
forum for education and emotional support, aimed at addressing the personal impact of
these events on individual Jews.
Dr. Erica Mesnard will facilitate the session to be held at Congregation Beth Israel.
All members of the CBI community are invited to attend.
This is not intended to be a political discussion, but rather an opportunity to create a
safe space where congregants can discuss their anxiety, hopes and fears with fellow
It is our hope, that in community, we can find support and develop
resiliency. Additional Questions: contact Al Quiery at
