The Caring Community Committee of the South District has been created in order to respond to the rapidly changing needs of the contemporary Jewish family and foster the continued development of synagogues as caring communities. The committee will assist in the development and implementation of district and congregational resources and programs, and will create district network affinity groups in areas such as: Mental Health, Resiliency Among Youth  and Parents ( suicide, self inflicted violence, body image, substance abuse), GLBT  Issues and Inclusion, Bioethics, Sacred Aging, and Disability Awareness. The committee will report to the South District’s Vice Chair for Jewish Values and coordinate with the URJ  Joint Commission on Outreach, Membership and Caring Community.
