Working Towards Cultural Competency for Jewish Communities


The goal of this webinar is to advance practitioners’ knowledge of and sensitivity to Judaism and the greater Jewish community. Judaism is not only a religion, but a culture as well, and this presentation will highlight the diverse range of Jewish identity and expression. We will discuss Judaism’s values, beliefs, traditions, rituals, and worldviews will be discussed and how these cultural elements manifest in everyday life. This is an important training for those who work closely with the Jewish community, have clients with Jewish family members, and/or for those who are interested in increasing their cultural competency of Judaism and Jewish Communities in general.




At the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify several Jewish identities and their expression in everyday life
  • Apply new strategies when working with individuals from the Jewish community
  • Summarize cultural-specific issues that may arise when working with Jewish clients
  • Identify Jewish myths and stereotypes and also recall factual data and statistics related to the Jewish population




Participants who fully attend this event will be eligible to receive 1.5 hours of continuing education (CE) certified by Ohio Mental Health and Addiction Services. CE certification will be managed by the hosting agency for this training (OACBHA).
