On Feb. 10, Call2Talk dedicated and opened the Cantor Jodi M. Schechtman Memorial Lending Library, a collection of books dedicated to bereavement, loss, grief, hope and renewal.

The library is dedicated in loving memory of our dear friend Cantor Jodi M. Schechtman formerly of Temple Beth Am of Framingham who sadly lost her courageous battle with ovarian cancer last year. Cantor Schechtman supported hundreds of families through their journeys of grief and loss and always instilled hope and enlightenment to anyone who crossed her path.

Call2Talk Director Eileen Davis and staff were honored to be joined for a dedication ceremony by Cantor Schechtman’s husband Gene, the couple’s daughter Madison, Rabbi Emeritus Don Splansky of Temple Beth Am and other close friends and donors.

The library has over 100 titles of books for children and adults, and will serve as a source of comfort to those who are bereaved as well as a support to students involved in this area of study. Thank you to the MetroWest Regional Coalition for Suicide Prevention and all those who supported this project!

To borrow a book, or donate to the library, contact Vicki at or 508-370-4841.
