History

The Jewish Social Service (Service Social Juif, SSJ) draws its specificity from the history of the Jewish Community decimated by the Shoah and has helped them to rebuild themselves physically, economically and morally.

As early as 1944, the Association of Israelite Victims of War (AIVG) enabled survivors to reintegrate into emotional, social and professional life. In 1961, AIVG changed its name to become the SSJ, but it maintained the same spirit, with professionals and volunteers ready to support the most vulnerable and disadvantaged. The objective was to provide our public with a comprehensive team of social workers and mental health professionals.
