Benny Rogosnitzky, a notable cantor, is a founder of Frum Divorce, a community-support organization dedicated to helping members of the religious community cope with the emotional fallout of separation and divorce. Divorce is a negative word, especially in the religious community. Divorce represents the end of a marriage, which is a cornerstone of Jewish life. However, divorce continues to grow in Jewish communities, and it often results in stigma, loneliness, isolation and shame.
While divorce can be painful for couples, it can be particularly difficult and even traumatizing for children. Benny Rogosnitzky and Frum Divorce are available to help parents and children heal from the pain of divorce in a supportive community environment. Frum Divorce provides a variety of resources and services to ensure families are not alone in their time of need. The organization offers support groups, community lectures, events and more to frum divorce families.
Frum Divorce provides families with the support they need to overcome the pain and loss of security associated with divorce, so they can embark on a new and positive beginning. Learn more at www.frumdivorce.org.
