“This is the great new problem of mankind. We have inherited ...a great ‘world house’ in which we have to live together — black and white, Easterner and Westerner, Gentile and Jew, Catholic and Protestant, Muslim and Hindu ...Because we can never again live apart, we must learn somehow to live with each other in peace.
An excerpt from King’s “Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community”

Our heart goes out to all of our Jewish families at this critical time in Jewish history and to all the children and families affected by this churlish act of violence. To have the High Holidays conclude with such vulgar hate weighs heavily our community as we continue to identify ways to show our endless support. May you and your families find reassurance of peace soon.

Kindly refrain from justifying trauma with “children are resilient.” What children are is unable to verbalize and emotionally intellectually process what they experienced until it resurfaces in adulthood…

At IPSNA our Mental Wellness class (modern day health class) ensures your child can logically and emotionally intellectually process life occurrences. Our instructors facilitate students through how they can eradicate, improve, or sustain life’s challenges and complexities.
