Hate crimes and terrorism target the community, creating widespread fear. As time passes we realize that terrorism is here to stay and that we need to prepare our communities, our families and ourselves to increase our resilience.
Join us for an informative presentation by Israeli professor Dr. Brom, an internationally renowned expert on coping with trauma and the road back to healing. The discussion will focus on the nature of community resilience, how we can increase the resilience of children and parents, and how society can organize itself in the face of ongoing threat.
Dr. Brom will also speak about PEACE OF MIND (POM), a program that brings Israeli soldier veterans that had particularly violent time in the Israel Defense forces overseas for therapy and community hosting. Temple Beth El of Boca Raton and Boca Raton Synagogue recently hosted a unit of 20 soldiers and 3 therapists through peace of mind and we will share reflections on that program as part of the eveing.
