Download PDF for this date

The war in Lebanon and the fallout from that war in the form of biased media reporting and the growth of anti-Semitism in this country has traumatized a sizeable portion of the Jewish population. Many of them are suffering from severe anxiety and depression. In order to help them, the Dutch Jewish Mental Health Society has decided to establish a 24-hour hotline for such Jews to call in for psychological counselling. The service will function on an experimental basis for six months. Twenty five person will rotate in answering the hotline.
