Jewish Home Launches Post-COVID Recovery Program
For a number of individuals who contracted the COVID-19 virus, recovery from initial symptoms has been followed by other lingering medical issues.  There is a great deal now being researched, and written, about “long haul” COVID and even those who may not be “long haulers” who still feel ongoing effects.
“The Jewish Home Family is excited to be offering a new program to help those who are Post-COVID fully recover and regain their strength,” says Jewish Home Family President and CEO Carol Silver Elliott.  “The program will take a holistic approach to the care of these individuals—addressing both physical and other concerns to help people return to an optimal quality of life.”
The Jewish Home Family is pleased to present this program to the community, continuing their more than 100 year tradition of recognizing and meeting health needs. Please call Charlene Vannucci at 201-478-4264 or email heal@jewishhomefamily.org for more information.


As an organization, CCSA has spent a lot of time focusing on communal efforts to confront the issue of substance use and addiction. But what about individual efforts? What can we do as family members? Friends? Neighbors? Colleagues?
On April 18, 2021 at 10:30 a.m. EST, CCSA is hosting a virtual event entitled "Someone I Know is Struggling with Substance Use, Now What?" The event will include a panel of Jewish leaders and professionals addressing the various obstacles, strategies, and options for getting someone help with a substance use issue or an addiction. Panelists include: Rabbi Dr. Benzion Twerski, Dr. Audrey Freshman, Rabbi Mordechai Willig, and Dr. Moshe Winograd. Collectively, they will address symptoms of an addiction, halachic concerns, communication strategies, and treatment options. Please join us. Pre-registration is available at: https://www.jewishccsa.org/upcoming-events. Following the panel, there will be a community fair where specific providers will be available to answer questions and address concerns.
