Since the Hamas terror attacks on October 7, the MetroWest community has been struggling with feelings of outrage, fear, anxiety, and worry for themselves, for the larger community, and for Israel. As it has done since 1861, Jewish Family Service of MetroWest NJ offers support groups, community programming, and individual therapy as a resource for the community. Its staff has been working with Holocaust survivors, local schools, and synagogues to support them while they deal with trauma reactions and situational anxiety.
JFS is continually assessing the needs of the community and wants to hear from people directly. Go to www.jfsmetrowest.org/jfs-communityresources-23 and let JFS how it can help; the site also includes resources that are valuable during times of crisis.
