In 2013, a very talented, beautiful, and spirited young Jewish woman who suffered from addiction lost her life a few days before her 21st birthday. The mother of this young woman and Alyza Berman discussed at length how to prevent further losses by bringing together resources in our community to effectively address substance abuse. This was the genesis of the Berman Center.
The dove in the logo originated from the beautiful artwork created by the young Jewish woman who lost her life so early. We hope that it provides a lasting inspiration and legacy to address addiction. Alyza dedicates the Berman Center in her memory.
