JF&CS Announces Partnership with BPSI

The Infant-Parent Training Institute (IPTI) is excited to announce our new partnership between the JF&CS Center for Early Relationship Support® and the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute (BPSI).

Annual Board Meeting 2019

"JF&CS is a jewel in the crown of Boston," said Rabbi Marc Baker, featured speaker at the JF&CS Annual Meeting on June 4. In addition to hearing from Rabbi Baker, JF&CS presented two annual awards to dedicated members of the agency and welcomed five new members to the JF&CS Board of Directors. Steven Weil of Newton received the Betsy Gross President's Award for his commitment to the agency as a volunteer, board member, committee chair, and committee member for more than twenty years. Jeff Cotton received the Simone Lottor Exceptional Service Award for his dedication to Schechter Holocaust Services as a volunteer for the past five years. 

The five new board members include Matthew Appelstein, who currently sits on the JF&CS Finance Committee; Paul Gershkowitz, who serves on the Business Advisory Committee and is a co-chair of the 2019 CHAI Champions event; Robin Gross and David Sands, both of whom sit on the JF&CS Compliance and Risk Management Committee; and Scott Krentzman of Newton, who serves on the JF&CS IT Committee.
Seventh graders from Jewish Community Day School (JCDS) in Watertown and German International School Boston (GISB) visited our Waltham headquarters to make birthday cards for clients of our Schechter Holocaust Services program.

At the 2019 JF&CS Women's Breakfast, Betsy Johnson gave a heartfelt speech about the longlasting impact the Center for Early Relationship Support® has had on her life.
