Over ten years ago, with the haskama of Rabbi Gissinger tz”l, yblch”t Rabbi Shachar and Rabbi Blech, Yad b’Yad began offering support groups facilitated by highly experienced therapists.
Under the clinical leadership of Goldy Jaroslawicz, LCSW and Blanca Klein, LCSW, what started as a small initiative with four groups has expanded over the years to eighteen groups.
Our facilitators are hand picked in consultation with Relief. Yad b’Yad groups meet in person in Lakewood and run once monthly.
There is no charge to attend.
This organization runs completely lishma with all therapists and everyone involved working as volunteers.
The goals are two-fold.
People meet others that are in similar situations and feel less alone. The facilitators ensure safety as well as provide skills.
Chasdei Hashem, hundreds of people are helped each month and many have developed close relationships that have really enhanced their lives.
We are now starting several new groups. To register, please call (732) 806-5610 or email [email protected]
