Throughout the year, dozens of Yad L'Achim psychologists and social workers are engaged in treating difficult cases of Jewish women and teens who find themselves in distress over relationships with members of minority groups.
Due to the spread of coronavirus, which has sparked widespread trauma and fear of the unknown, and in response to the wave of calls received by the Yad L'Achim hotline from worried parents seeking counseling in these areas, the organization has decided to make available to the public several social workers and psychologists.
These experienced professionals will answer your questions and help relieve your anxiety, depression and fears. The service, which of course is free of charge, is also being offered to young girls who are in distress of one form or another due to the fragile situation.
Initially, the hotline, whose number is 03-670-6065, will operate this Sunday, Monday and Tuesday (4-6 Nissan) between the hours of 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. Hours will be expanded as necessary.
A senior Yad L'Achim official said: "We are happy to make available to the public professionals who spearhead our counter-assimilation department, which deals with the most complex and difficult cases. These days are not easy for our staffers, but because of the sensitive situation the country finds itself in they have agreed to offer assistance and counseling to the broader public. Discretion assured."
For assistance, call 03-670-6065.
