Many people in recovery rely on AA, NA and other meetings, in order for them to maintain their sobriety, and we at Amudim are here to do all we can to ensure that people do all they can to maintain their sobriety, and stay safe.
The same goes for people who are having issues with mental health and need someone to talk too.
These matters are considered life and death, and therefore are permissible on Shabbos and Yom Tov.
In consultation with our Rabbinical Leadership, we are presenting a Video from Harav Dovid Cohen Shlit’a, stating unequivocally that this is permissible, as well a section to Rabbi Avi Kahan, explaining the proper way to do this with a Shinui.
The support line is being answered by mental health professionals, 7 days a week, including Shabbos and Yom Tov, from 8 AM to 11 PM, EST. If you need to speak to a mental health professional during other times, please call, and you will be transferred to our live 24/7 call center, and we will attempt to connect you with a mental health professional as soon as possible.
