Community Wide Symposium To Be Held For Women

lcscIn light of the recent tragedies that have befallen Klal Yisroel, there have been many inquiries to our Rabbonim and community leaders as to the proper Hashkafic approach to these issues and what concrete steps we can undertake both on a Ruchnius and a practical level.

After consultation with the Kehila’s Daas Torah, the LCSC will be presenting a community wide symposium for women to address these critical issues. Divrei P’sicha will be presented by the Mashgiach HaRav Matsiyohu Salomon. This will be followed by a presentation by one of the Kehilla’s senior and most experienced counselors, Mrs. Hadassah Goodman LCSW, with decades of experience in dealing with individual and family trauma. The event will take place this Sunday evening, August 7, 2011 at:

Bais Yaakov High School
277 James Street.
Doors will open at 8:00PM and the program will begin at 8:30PM. No prior registration is necessary.

LCSC is a community organization focused on servicing the social service needs of Lakewood with a broad array of programs including individual and family counseling by licensed and experienced clinicians, DBT and support groups, after school programs, meals on wheels for seniors and small business services.

  1. START teshuva now

    yes there can be other reasons for these tragedies occuring BUT THE ONLY COMMON thing with ALL these tragediues-locally & worldwide-is they all happened because noone is ready to confess & start doing teshuva towards Mashiach.

    BUT THE TRUTH is each person by himself knows that we all need to do teshuva & return to Hashem

    May this Tisha B’av be a yom tov

  2. If someone can please inform me (and all) under which Rabonim is the Lcsc, and which Moreh Horah paskind that our woman should heed advise of a “experienced counselor?”

  3. The Mashgiach is speaking.

    Alternatively, ask your own Morah Hora’ah for yourself and follow his guidance. Don’t leave negative comments here. This can be of great benefit to many in town.

    Yes, by all means, all the women of the community should be invited.

  4. To # 5:
    The Mashgiach Horav Solomon Shlit”a gives his complete Haskama and fully supports the agenda of the LCSC. His public commitment and obvious public showing for the organization ought to make you and everybody who is curious realize just how worthy a social service this is for our community and the tremendous items is caters to.

    There is probably no one greater in America today then our Mashgiach in regard to who can give proper Hashkafa and guidance to this situation and any other. We should be happy and thankful that we have the Mashgiach in our midst and not need to turn to anyone else to assist us in our personal lives.

  5. The Mashgiach speaks for many organizations and it soes not show that he always gives his Haskama to everything he speaks at.

    What I and I’m sure others would like to know is if this particular orginzation is under rabinincal leadership?

  6. The program will include practical tools as how to react and communicate effectively in appropriate age-specific language with children when they learn of a horrifying tragedy (not specifically focusing an any one incident).

  7. There is Sinas Chinam. There is tznius. There is Lashon Harah. These are known problems. Everything else is just kvetching and denying what we really have to work on.

  8. Hadassah Goodman started “shalva” in Chicago 25 years ago. Do a search and see what she is all about. Ask Daas Torah in Lakewood if this woman should be a public speaker for Lakewood women before any woman attends.
