About the First Supporter Project. 

The First Supporter Project aims to provide a series of resources and inspiration to assist the spiritual leader in being the best support they can be for the particular situation.

Who is a First Supporter? • Rabbi   • Rebbetzin   • Kallah teacher  • Chosson teacher   • Mashpia/ Madrich  • Askan  •  anyone who works with people in need of support

In times of personal crisis, a person will often turn first to their spiritual/religious leader. 
The religious leader is in a unique position to respond to people who are impacted by a crisis because he or she is already in an established role, has a core of relationships, and brings a faith perspective that speaks to the need for meaning that is so pervasive in the human experience of suffering.
