Connecting Holocaust Survivors
Survivors sharing memories, finding support, and each other
For many survivors, memories of the Holocaust and of those many losses have led to loneliness, isolation and depression. But meeting others who have gone through this shared experience can be helpful, and the kinship that results can be supportive and comforting.
As we are linked by the common goal of preserving and honoring our legacy, providing support to those who lived through it, tackling issues of mutual interest and informing and teaching future generations, Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Greater Philadelphia honors Survivors by helping them find the special connections they need and want.
- An active social support network for conversation and friendship
- A sense of belonging and community
- Help with feelings of depression, loss and loneliness
Our Event Activities
We also offer a special enrichment program designed to bring Holocaust Survivors together in a supportive atmosphere. Participants have the opportunity to socialize and enjoy recreational and educational activities on a monthly basis. Kosher lunch is provided, as well as transportation assistance when available.
Social services for Jewish Nazi victims have been supported by a grant from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.
