The Caring Communities Resource Network (CCRN) supports synagogue efforts to create and sustain caring communities through synagogue and community-wide trainings, consultations, and conferences.
JF&CS partners with various synagogues in our area, offering congregants support and resources for any challenge they may face, from mental health to life transitions.
The CCRN supports synagogue and community trainings for programs like Dementia Friends and the Friendly Visitor program, while also offering consultations for congregants needing help with economic insecurity, aging, life changes, and more.
During the pandemic, we have increased our mental health offerings to include many workshops targeted to enriching the ties between members of our community during this isolating time.
These workshops include:
- The Unexpected Experience of Grandparenting during a Pandemic
- Coping with Loss in Our Communities
- Fostering Wellness in the Midst of the Pandemic...and Beyond
- Jewish Wisdom for Self-Care
- Wisdom for Growing Older
...and many more! You can learn more about these workshops and how they may benefit you and other members of your congregation, please read our flyer here!
