On January 11, the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia and the Foundation for Jewish Day Schools hosted a Symposium on Improving the Social and Emotional Health of Jewish Teens and Young Adults. The morning brought out leaders and professionals, including speakers from  Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Moving Traditions, TeachPA and more, focusing on a communal approach to mental health support.


"Young people thrive when they know they are unconditionally loved by the adults closest to them and that their emotional needs are seen and supported," said keynote speaker Dr. Ken Ginsburg, attending physician in the Division of Adolescent Medicine and the co-director of the Center for Parent and Teen Communication at CHOP.

The program included some of the following topics: Framing Youth Effectively, Jewish Approaches to Wellbeing and the Tasks of Adolescence, Listening Session on Community and Agency Needs, and more.
