Bereavement (Pilot Program)

Journey Through Grief

The death of a loved one can be devastating. Bereavement groups or individual sessions with rabbis and social workers support mourners through an emotionally challenging time, before and after a loss.

Topics may include

  • Spiritual questions related to pain and suffering
  • Feelings of regret, anger, sadness, depression and guilt
  • Celebrations and holidays without a loved one
  • The “helpful” things people say
  • Navigating day to day life
  • Asking for what you really need
  • Self-care
  • Physical manifestation of grief
  • Mourning when a relationship was complex
  • Family dynamics
  • Views of the afterlife
  • Value of Mourner’s Kaddish and other Jewish practices
