Knowing what you should or should not say to someone struggling with infertility can be hard to navigate. Sometimes just letting you them know that you are there for them is enough!

If you or someone you know needs emotional or educational fertility support, please reach out to our Jewish Fertility Foundation Birmingham coordinator, Julie Cohen, [email protected].

When Charles Broome donated his used Ford Ta**us to CJFS last August, he outfitted it with new tires, wiper blades, battery and brakes "so it will be in good shape for the next person." That person was CJFS client Donna Lowe, who uses her car to help neighbors at her subsidized senior housing building. "I've been taking folks to doctors and the grocery store, and lately to veterinarians, because everybody's animal seems to need to see the vet,"
Donna said. "It's a blessing, and people know who to come to when they want to go somewhere." If you have a vehicle you no longer need, please consider donating it to CJFS! Contact Development/Outreach Director Clay Ratcliffe, [email protected] or 205.879.7111 #kindnessrocks #generous

To my fellow Jews, we are the children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors. A generation of Jews who were oppressed and murdered en masse. It is our duty, not only by the Torah, but in honor of all those who died and all those who survived to stand up for the oppressed, to speak out against the oppressor. The Torah reminds us time and again, “Do not oppress the stranger, for you were strangers in the Land of Egypt (Exodus 23:9).” We do not simply empathize with victims of oppression, but we must acknowledge that having been victims ourselves, we are at greater risk of repeating oppressive behaviors. As we struggled for freedom throughout history and throughout all the nations of the world, we have taken up the tools of the oppressor. Many of us are white and we benefit from our whiteness every single day. We take up these tools without realizing or recognizing, and yet here we stand benefitting from the same systems and tools that once oppressed us. We must focus our energy on creating dignity and equality for ALL. We must end oppression, FOR ALL. We must join together in protection of our black brothers and sisters. We must teach our children, leading them by example as we stand up and speak up for our black community. While our neighbor is oppressed, we too shall be oppressed.
