Social Work Programs

Monthly Fertility Group: Find support and comfort with other women who've experienced fertility struggles, miscarriage, and late-stage pregnancy loss in a safe and relaxed setting. Guest speakers will come and talk about topics related to Fertility and share relevant and helpful resources with the group. Everything discussed in the group is strictly confidential. RSVP required as the group will be meeting in private homes.

Monthly Single Parents by Choice Group: Meet other people who are on the journey of raising a child on their own or who are looking to have a child on their own. In this group, group members can share the highs and lows of single parenthood, get valuable resources and referrals for professionals in the field, and find common ground with other similar individuals.

KJ Caring Committee: This committee is dedicated to caring for the members of KJ who may no longer be able to attend shul due to advancing age, illness, or physical limitations. From weekly pre-shabbat phone calls, friendly home visits, accompaniment to doctor appointments, the KJ Caring Committee is here to offer support and companionship. Please reach out to Danielle at socialworker@ckj.org for requests.

Ahava@ KJ: If you are single and looking for your bisheret (your intended), you've come to the right place! We take the time to interview our members and screen them before setting them up on dates. We have also paired up with Dine N' Meet, an offshoot of the popular dating site, Saw You At Sinai, to run events for singles based on age and level of observance. So far we've had a "Chopped" evening of competition and fun as well as a wine and food pairing event. We have several events set for the upcoming year so stay tuned!

Individual supportive counseling sessions available: If you are experiencing stress in your life that stems from a specific event or a culmination of factors and you are looking for someone to consult with and who can provide support on either a one time basis, as needed, or ongoing, please contact Danielle at socialworker@ckj.org to schedule a session. These sessions can be done in person or over the phone and are strictly confidential.

Lecture series on Mental Health issues: This will be a yearlong series consisting of 6 lectures given by professionals in the field of mental health. Topics may include eating disorders and perfectionism, how to cope with anxiety and stress, the changing face of families, how to keep our children safe in this tech-heavy world, coming to terms with a child who may not "fit in." Stay tuned for the schedule of speakers.
