UJA-Federation of New York’s Partners In Caring (PIC) Partners with HJC
UJA-Federation of New York’s Partners in Caring (PIC) is a wonderful resource, extending social work services of their network agencies into almost 150 synagogues throughout Metropolitan New York. The goal of PIC is to reach the Jewish community in need through the doors of synagogues. PIC reinforces the caring potential of synagogues to be a source of support, compassion and connection for congregants who may be experiencing stress in their lives, and could benefit from professional social work support.
HJC is partnering with PIC so that congregants in need of support can receive help from the F.E.G.S social worker, Barbara Sheryll, LMSW. Barbara is a warm and empathic professional. She can help those who may be dealing with depression due to the death of a loved one, stress due to divorce,worries about finances, child rearing concerns, or any other issues that may be troubling you. Barbara is available to any congregants who would like to meet with her. Sessions are held at the Suffolk YJCC, and are free of charge. She can be reached at 631-462-9800 ext. 251.
If you have any questions please call Janet Zimmerman, PIC liaison, at (631)491-4084, or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
