AUDIO: Project Chai Hosts Community-Wide Crisis Support Call in Response to Norfolk Tragedy

As emergency personnel continue their search for Rabbi Reuven Bauman, a rebbi at Yeshiva Toras Chaim in Norfolk, Virginia, who was swept out to sea earlier this week, Chai Lifeline is offering its resources and support to the community. Project Chai, the crisis intervention, trauma and bereavement department of Chai Lifeline, hosted a community-wide call on Thursday morning, July 11. More than 1,000 people called in to hear Rabbi Dr. Dovid Fox, Project Chai Director of Interventions and Community Education, address various psychological, spiritual, parenting, and practical concerns with regard to students, children and adults.

Listen to a recording of the call below.

Project Chai has also issued the following guidelines to lend psychological structure during times of trauma.

“We encourage anyone in need to avail themselves of Chai Lifeline’s resources during this difficult time,” said Rabbi Simcha Scholar, CEO of Chai Lifeline.
