Grief is Not an Illness From Which You Recover

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will be an informal exchange with participants about grief as part of the life cycle, how grief changes us, how death has different meanings at various points in our lives, what is lost when a loved one dies, how we accommodate to loss, the importance of remembering and how Jewish rituals can help.
