Today is August 17, 2018 -
Back in June, I asked the community to help us locate parents of olim (people who have moved to Israel). We’ve now identified more than 60 parents eager to join together to discuss common issues.
The past couple of weeks have been challenging for Israelis and all of us who love and support Israel, but especially difficult for parents of olim. At their request, we will host a facilitated discussion with Marjorie Gang, LCSW, on “The mixed emotions of raising Zionists and having them move 6,000 miles away.”
College campuses around the country have been seeing an increase of anti-Israel and anti-Jewish activity. While things have been relatively quiet locally, we want to proactively make sure that our students are educated and prepared. To that extent, in partnership with ADL, JCPA, AEPi, and our local Hillels, we have lined up a series of programs for the remainder of the semester. The first set of programs will be this week when we bring in Professor Gil Troy to speak at both University at Albany and Union College. We will transport students from other area schools, and both events will be open to the community at large.
Please see flyers below and our website for all upcoming programs, and call me with any questions, concerns, or other ideas. These are trying times. You’ve asked us to respond. We’re responding.
