Clergy are on the front lines of Jewish life. How you speak about family building and the care you provide to people facing family building obstacles sets the tone in Jewish community life. You are a doorway for people to come through when they need help and a microphone for advocacy and sensitivity.

Spiritual Care Training – Strengthen your sensitivity and pastoral care tools!
Clergy play a critical role representing Jewish tradition and providing spiritual care to community members who find themselves facing these issues. This seminar demystifies the experience of infertility, explores the emotional and spiritual issues surrounding it, and provides tools for rabbis to support those experiencing infertility and other family building challenges.
E-brochures, handouts, signage in appropriate places help build awareness and let people know 1) Infertility is real an 2) there is support for people facing challenges having children. Additionally, parents, friends and other can benefit from learning about resources in the Jewish community. Contact Idit@hasidah.org and get brochures, postcards, bulletin signs mailed to you or similar information for newsletters, websites and social media.
