Shalom Dear Friends,

This incoming press release caught my eye. The facilitator Adam and I are close personal friends and have had long, in-depth conversations on a variety of topics. He's very sharp, very good at leading conversation and at bringing out what's deep down inside a person's mind. Thank G-d, I'm not divorced, but highly recommend Adam's group below even for those divorcees who don't feel a need. Try it. 


Jerusalem Support Group for Divorced Men
A group is now being formed at "The Place", The Jerusalem Centre for Emotional Wellbeing in the Ramat Eshkol neighborhood to begin March 2nd, 9-10pm Wednesdays.

Men are in much greater need of support after divorce than women.  Men tend to have less developed support networks and therefore suffer from such bad health effects as heart attacks and strokes.

This support group is a resource for men to rebuild and prepare for the future in addition to dealing with present issues such as custody, visitation, and finances.

Important topics such as:  Sense of identity issues, loneliness, emotional pain, self-esteem issues.  The  grieving process is also more intense for men due to less psychological preparation.   Other topics that participants may suggest may also be covered.

The group is open to divorced men of all ages.

Facilitator: Adam Schanzer, MFC, CASAP
Cost: 35 NIS per group

For more information contact Adam at 058-328-8810 and he will return your call.
