Education & Training
Thousands of people learn with JFCS each year—trainings for mental health professionals and for teachers; parenting workshops; internships for teens, and seminars for older adults on the issues of aging and caregiving.
Many JFCS staff are leaders in educating others in their fields of expertise and in conducting evidence-based research to advance their work.
Community members, lay leaders, and staff participate in leadership trainings as well as seminars focused on Jewish values with Shalom Hartman Institute.
Additionally, the JFCS Holocaust Center is the primary resource for Holocaust education in California and is a global leader in combating antisemitism, racism, and prejudice. More than 20,000 students and teachers participate in its educational programs each year, and it offers university and high school fellowships.
