Grief Support group to resume meetings in October
August 27, 2021
Grief is a noun that means deep sorrow especially caused by someone’s death. Are you coping with the loss of a spouse, parent, child or loved one? Join a free grief support group run by Rabbi Maurice Kaprow who serves on the Board of Directors for the Jewish Pavilion. Be part of an encouraging, supportive network. When you are ready, the Jewish Pavilion can help you with a six-week on-going program to help you cope with grief. Rabbi Kaprow recommends that people wait six months after a death to participate, because the grief is too raw prior to that time. The program helps participants deal with their grief through a Jewish Lens and members participate in all six sessions.
Joining a grief support group can seem like a big step. Grief brings on a lot of intense feelings at times, and you may wonder if opening yourself up to those feelings and focusing on them is something you want or can manage. It may also feel risky to expose your vulnerable self to participants in a group. These concerns are a normal part of the group experience and everything shared in the group is strictly confidential. The Jewish Pavilion has offered Grief Support with Rabbi Kaplan for six years in the fall and spring. Many previous participants have found that the group can be a rewarding and transformative one.
The Jewish Pavilion Grief Support Group meets Oct 13 - November 10. Sessions are from 10:30-11:30 a.m. and held outdoors at Cascade Heights 160 Islander Court. To register contact Nancy Ludin NancyLudin@jewishPavilion.org or 407-678-9363.
