Through The Ezra Network, a social worker, job counselor and legal counselor are available to serve the STS community – providing guidance and assistance to those in our congregation, as well as non-members in the area. What you talk about with these professionals is totally confidential. In fact, unless you sign a consent form, they will not even share with the rabbi or anyone else at the synagogue that you in fact have spoken or met.
To make an appointment with Elenna King, the social worker( who is onsite at Shomrei Torah every Wednesday and is available by appointment or drop-in), call 818-854-9760
The Ezra Network social worker also facilitates an Ezra Network Bereavement support group at our synagogue every Wednesday.
