We miss seeing everyone and have decided to present virtual programs to keep in touch until we can meet again in person.
Our first program will be How the Holocaust Impacts on Our Lives Today and Why Our Gatherings Mean So Much To Us
We will hear from Dr. Irit Felsen, a clinical psychologist specializing in trauma and traumatic loss with a focus on Holocaust survivors and their descendants. Dr Felsen is an adjunct professor at Columbia University and at Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, Yeshiva University. In addition to her private practice, Dr. Felsen is the the chair of the Work Group on Older Adults within the APA Covid-19 Task force, and the Co-Chair of the Trauma Working Group of the NGO Committee on Mental Health in Consultative Relationship with the United Nations. She is also a board member of the Holocaust Council of Metro West, a member of the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress, and a researcher with the Yale University Trauma Study Group, where she served as principal investigator in a study about trauma.
Introductory remarks will be given by WF President Stefanie Seltzer and Vice President Max Arpels-Lezer.
After Dr. Felsen’s presentation, we will open the floor to welcome questions and discussion from all attendees.
WF Executive Committee Member Daisy Miller will give concluding remarks.
Sunday, November 7th via zoom at 10 am Pacific, 1 pm Eastern, 7 pm Europe, and 8 pm Israel.
