In solidarity with the people of Israel

Oct. 10, 2023 — On behalf of the Cummings Centre, we are shaken and deeply saddened by this weekend’s terrorist attacks against civilians in Israel.  We are heart-broken by the loss of life and the fear and uncertainty that has invaded the region.

We stand in solidarity with the people of Israel, both here and abroad.

Many people throughout the Cummings Centre family – members, participants, clients, volunteers, staff, and donors have loved ones in Israel and/ or are deeply connected to the State of Israel. Our hearts go out to those directly impacted by this horrific situation.

If you or someone you know is in need of mental health support services at this time, please contact our colleagues at Ometz at 514.342.0000 or [email protected].
