A long and often toxic presidential campaign is over and the results have our community and our children processing their thoughts and feelings. To support parents and educators as they support their children and students, we've compiled resources. We welcome any additional resources you have found helpful. Please send them to SGilman@jewishlearningworks.org for inclusion.
