Jewish Community Services

Jewish Community Services

Our Jewish Community Services programs integrate our mental and behavioral health services with spirituality, combining the richness of Jewish traditions with social work practices—such as spiritual and group counseling, workshops, consultation, training, and more.

Our Jewish Community Services offer individuals and families connections to the support of peers and community. And we work with Jewish organizations, such as synagogues, JCCs, Y’s, and schools, to enhance their services and programming.

Our Jewish clients are Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, Chasidic and unaffiliated. We help these individuals and communities facing issues of:

  • Serious illness or injury
  • End-of-life care
  • Loss and bereavement
  • Making healthy life choices
  • Addiction recovery
  • and other community care and support concerns
