Shoreline Bereavement Support Group

8:30AM - 9:30AM  

Jewish Federation's Shoreline Office 705 Boston Post Road
Guilford, CT 06437

Contact Rabbi Hesch Sommer D. Min.

Coping with the loss of a loved one has no set time frame. There are moments when we are managing as best we can in the new normalcy of life, and then there are moments when we continue to struggle. Holidays, life-cycle events and familiar locales may return us to memories which both fill us with joy and are bittersweet as well. A bereavement group offers an opportunity to reflect with others who can understand our struggles in a way that individuals who have not suffered the loss of a loved one cannot. This group will meet monthly and provide time to reflect, offer us comfort with fellow travelers and gives us a chance to renew our inner strength as we travel on. A minimum of 4 people must be present to run this group. Sponsored by the Jewish Wellness and Healing Center: A Center Without Walls - A Project of Jewish Family Service of New Haven in collaboration with Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven's Shoreline Office. Facilitated by Rabbi Hesch Sommer D.Min. , JFS Director of the Jewish Wellness & Healing Center. To RSVP or for more info., contact Rabbi Sommer at or 203-389-5599 Ext.117.

Sponsor: JFGNH & JFS
