As the horrific events in Israel continue to unfold, the importance of community — here in Birmingham and with other Jewish Community Centers around the world — has become more important than ever.
Accordingly, we’ve turned our lobby here at The J into a community “living room” of sorts where you’ll be welcome to hang out while talking with and supporting community members, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. this Monday through Friday (for starters). We’ll even provide some refreshments.
In addition, we’ve compiled a list of local and national resources that might be useful to you in the coming days and weeks.
Leaders of Birmingham’s Jewish organizations are meeting regularly to discuss how we can best respond to the ongoing crisis. We will update the resource page with pertinent information as it becomes available.
