Joint statement from Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Minneapolis and Jewish Family Service of St. Paul
Many people from the Jewish and broader communities have heightened concerns for their safety due to the recent targeting of Jewish Community Centers and other Jewish institutions locally and nationwide by individuals who have called in bomb threats and conveyed other hateful messages. Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Minneapolis (JFCS) and Jewish Family Service of St. Paul (JFS) offer support, counseling, and resources to assist individuals and families at this time of disruption and uncertainty.
As organizations that work closely with the JCCs, we are proud of the care and expert handling demonstrated by both Centers regarding these events that have taken place over the past few weeks. Our communities are enriched by all the activities provided by our Jewish Community Centers, and we value the care and compassion they provide to participants of all backgrounds at their facilities.
If you would like to speak with a counselor at JFCS, please call 952-546-0616 or at JFS, please call 651-698-0767.
