Coping with Tragedy an address by Rabbi Dr. David Fox from July 18, 2011 in response to the murder of Leiby Kletzky – shared at Project CHAI Teaneck Symposium.
Through programs that address the emotional, social, and financial needs of seriously ill children, their families, and communities, Chai Lifeline restores normalcy to family life, and better enables families to withstand the crises and challenges of serious pediatric illness.
Chai Lifeline’s crisis intervention services offer families, schools, camps, and community groups an unprecedented level of resources and services. Starting in the first few hours after a crisis occurs, Chai Lifeline’s professionals and trained paraprofessionals support the affected families and facilitate community responses.
Since 1987, Chai Lifeline and its affiliates’ mission has been to restore the light of childhood to children whose innocence ended when life-threatening or lifelong illness was diagnosed.
