Grief Support group begins again

 

October 26, 2018



The Jewish Pavilion and Vitas Hospice is offering a free, six-week Grief Support group for people who have lost loved ones (spouses, children, parents, etc.). The first session is on Monday, Nov.12 from 10:30 a.m. until noon at Oakmonte Village (Valencia Building) in Lake Mary. Rabbi Maurice Kaprow from VITAS Innovative Hospice will lead the discussion.

Judaism provides a beautiful, structured approach to mourning that involves three stages. When followed carefully, these stages guide mourners through the tragic loss and pain and gradually ease them back into the world. The loss is forever, but the psychological, emotional, and spiritual healing that takes place at every stage is necessary and healthy.

The process of mourning is not easy, and the class provides a structure to let mourners feel their aloneness, separating them from the outside world and then gradually reinstating them back into society.

Time does heal. But not because we are busy and the memories fade. With time comes the realization that the person we are today reflects the loved one we lost. The elements of our character, actions and values may result from this special soul lost.

Like all Pavilion events, refreshments and socializing are part of the program. RSVP to Nancy Ludin at the Jewish Pavilion nancyludin@jewishpavilion.org or 407-678-9363.
