What changes do you want to see in our community? What services and programs should our Jewish community provide? Make your voice heard. Regardless of how you identify Jewishly, no matter your level of observance (or non-observance), please take the Jewish Federation survey. Your feedback will help all our entire community – synagogues, schools, and agencies – work together to build a more dynamic and relevant Jewish New Haven for you!

Have you been furloughed or lost your job due to COVID-19? Are you overwhelmed and don’t know where to start a job search? Are anxiety or depression making it difficult to take the first step?
Join Rachel Scolnic, LMSW and Hannah Leiterman, LCSW for a free Job Seekers Workshop and Support Group, at Jewish Family Services of Greater New Haven. We will meet on Zoom on Tuesday, June 23 and July 7 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
You’ll receive guidance on job search strategies during the pandemic, and help coping with the emotional toll a job loss takes. Hear from others experiencing similar obstacles, and share ideas and leads. We will provide individualized assistance as needed for participants, including resume assistance and mental health counseling. To register for these workshops, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a resume you would like to use during this workshop, please forward that as well. Once registered, you’ll receive a Zoom invitation.
