About Our Guest:

Menachem Hojda LMSW-C is the grandson of 4 Holocaust survivors. He was given the name Menachem because its meaning “the one who comforts” describes the hope his grandparents felt as they healed from the cruel genocide of their families with the birth of a new generation. Menachem strives to live up to that legacy by doing his part to value the miraculous healing made possible when people experience connection and belonging. As an Adjunct Professor at Touro University Graduate School of Social Work, and a Field Instructor at University of Michigan School of Social Work he explores the application of these concepts with students. He is a Master Trainer at Living Works and trains for Oakland Community Health Network. He practices Clinical Social Work and provides Clinical Supervision at Fairsky Foundation, and serves on the Board of Nefesh International.
