Foster Care and Adoption in The Jewish Community

Hosted By: Moment Magazine

Jews have always been called upon to protect the most vulnerable. Today, the need is greater than ever, with approximately 700 children entering foster care every day and over 20,000 teens aging out of foster care each year.

Rabbi Susan Silverman, founder of Second Nurture, which seeks to encourage and support those fostering and adopting children and teens, and Rob Scheer, founder of Comfort Cases, an organization whose mission is to bring dignity and hope to youth in foster care, will speak about the challenges and struggles facing children in search of their forever families. Silverman and Scheer will also share their own moving stories of foster care and adoption. In conversation with Rita Soronen, President and CEO of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
