Online support group where college faculty and staff can discuss feelings and impacts from the war in Israel and rising antisemitism.


In light of recent events in Israel and Gaza and the reverberations across U.S. college and university campuses, Jewish Family & Children's Service is providing mental health support for our college and university communities in Greater Boston.

As clinical experts, we recognize the toll that these events are taking on our faculty and staff and are creating a safe online space to seek support, process personal experience, and share individual emotions.

We will be running one of these support group sessions on December 13 at 7 p.m. for college faculty and staff. The group is free, requires pre-registration, and will include ASL interpretation.
