Seeking Human Connection—Community Resources in a Time of Uncertainty

A speaker talking in an auditorium full of engaged adults.

Following the unprecedented attack on Israel by Hamas on October 7 and in light of the tremendous destruction of life and community in Gaza during the ensuing conflict, we have compiled resources and conducted events to help us feel more connected to each other, better understand the complex history of the region, and find ways to cope with the harsh realities of antisemitism at home and the war abroad.
