“Death and Mourning” sounds like a pretty depressing topic to most of us, but it’s actually a very rich and beautiful time of transition when handled supportively. The Jewish customs for coping with the loss of a loved one are extremely tender. I wish I’d known about them when my Dad passed away. It would have given me a secure, loving framework for working through my grief. Join us tonight for our study, Death and Mourning. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
