A Jewish Response to Suicide

| |

Every year in America, nearly 35,000 people commit suicide. Many Jews are among those who take their own lives, and in an effort to respond to the absence of Jewish resources for suicide prevention, Efrem Epstein has founded an organization called Elijah’s Journey: A Jewish Response to Suicide Prevention.

Tomorrow night (February 8th) Elijah’s Journey will be joining with Uri L’Tzedek and The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, NYC Chapter to offer a special inspirational Beit Midrash on the issue.  The event will be held at Drisha, 37 W. 65th Street from 7:15-9:00 PM.  Thanks to the generosity of AFSP NYC and Drisha, the event will be free.
