    A first for Crown Heights! There will be a free informational seminar to be held by the Jewish Crohn’s and Colitis Support Group (JCCSG) on Tuesday, November 29th. The evening will focus on awareness, knowledge and support for those affected directly or indirectly by Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, known as Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis; which if left untreated can lead to life threatening complications.

    The event will take place at 7:15 PM at the Lubavitch Yeshivah Hall, 570 Crown St., Brooklyn NY 11213. The well-known Mendy Pellin will serve as Comedic Master of Ceremonies. Mendy has recently come out to the public about his condition, which led to many people finally express themselves about their own disease. The event will feature prominent gastroenterologists, followed by a Q&A session.

    Crohn’s and Colitis are found more commonly in Caucasians. According to studies, CD and UC are two to three times more common in those with Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry, suggesting that CD and UC may be inherited.

    The Jewish Crohn’s and Colitis Support Group (JCCSG) was founded in 2011 by a group of sufferers with its mission to provide Advocacy, Education, Help, Information, Medical referrals and Support to the people of the Orthodox Jewish community who are suffering of Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis. To improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases. And to spread awareness within the community.

    “Because neither the cause nor a cure for these chronic conditions is yet known, one has to learn how to live with the complications that occur with the diseases. Support groups are important for those suffering from this painful condition. It is so easy to feel alone, but it doesn’t have to be that way. JCCSG already made such a big difference for many sufferers, and can make a difference for you and your family” said Yoely Drummer, Founder and Executive Director of JCCSG. “What Mendy Pellin did is what we should all do. Mendy’s message was loud and clear: you are not alone!”

    This event is co-sponsored by the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America.

    For more information or to become a co-sponsor for this event, please contact the JCCSG, at 718-635-2274 or email info@JCCSG.org.
