Service Social Juif

  • Jewish Social Service
  • SSJ


The Jewish Social Service finds its specific nature in the history of the Jewish community depleted by the genocide and whose survivors owed ​​their survival to their own resources and also, essentially, the solidarity of the resistance and the Belgian population. In 1944, the Association of Jewish War Victims (AIVG) assisted the survivors to integrate both emotionally, socially and professionally in life. It is in this crucible that the SSJ was founded in 1961 by voluntary administrators present for the early hours and others who had joined them afterwards. The objective was to place at the disposal of the public a full team of social workers and mental health care.
