A Jewish cultural group in NYC says it will offer counseling to people affected by today’s Wall Street meltdown.

Rabbi Adam Jacobs of Aish Hatorah said:

Today’s devastation on Wall Street is something affecting New Yorkers of all walks of life. We feel the need to provide a religious forum for people who may want to speak with a Rabbi or to understand that no matter how difficult it may seem there is a greater good overlooking us. We expect many Wall Street employees, executives and others to join us to better understand the religious viewpoint on the collapse of two Wall Street giants, and to discuss their emotions and options.
