Our Best Campaign Yet!


Thank you to our board members for giving this campaign their all—and providing a matching grant to launch it. We raised more money and got more social media followers than in any campaign before. 30,000 people watched our video. The 2N movement is growing!


See Susan’s quick thanks below.



Our Clergy: Meeting New Needs

Clergy gather quarterly to learn about 2N resources and share their own educational, programmatic and ritual ideas to better serve families who foster and adopt.





“No two stories are the same, no two pathways are the same. Second Nurture is there to support families throughout their fostering / adoption journey. They helped us realize that this is indeed the path we needed to be on.“ (Cohort member)



Meet Chaya Lev, Religious School Coordinator

Chaya earned a Certificate of Jewish Studies from the Melton School of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and taught Jewish Studies at Temple Shalom in Dallas, TX. She now lives in Tel Aviv where she created the robust Chaya Dance Movement which combines dance with Torah and healing.






Cohort member Matt explains Second Nurture, professor style. We love our families!

We are in the final days of our Foster Care Awareness month matching grant. Can you help make up the $3,000 we have left to go?




Second Nurture was founded in 2017 by Susan Silverman. After meeting hundreds of people in dozens of cities in the US and Canada while touring with her book, a memoir about her family and adoption, she became convinced that many more people would foster and adopt if they had direction, fellowship and support.
