Healing Communities: Caring for the Leaders of Communities Impacted by Violent Trauma

Today we had the opportunity to amplify the important dialogue around healing our healers.

We screened Episode 5: Faith Leaders as First and Second Responders at The National September 11 Memorial & Museum followed by an incredible panel of featured faith leaders and experts in the field of trauma support.

Episode 5 features Cantor Michael Shochet, a Senior Clergy at Temple Rodef Shalom in Falls Church, VA, who was on call during the Pentagon terror attack on 9/11, the Washington Sniper shootings, and many local traumas related to gun violence and terror attacks.
