Messages of resilience, ritual, responsibility and renewal fill the headlines and broadcasts as we witness and participate in history. As we continue to navigate these unprecedented times, it is a powerful reminder that each of us is a catalyst for connection, support and hope in our respective communities. The ways in which we connect with one another and the values we live by and communicate through our actions matter. Words matter. Conversation matters. Community matters.
As new resources become available, we’ll be posting them here on JewishBostonTeens.com.
