The Art of Comfort
There is deep Jewish wisdom when visiting the sick (“What do I say?”) and consoling the the mourners (“What do I do during shiva?") Sometimes it’s not just family, but also supporting caregivers, comforting the self, and the gift of shiva and how to do it well. Yes, there is shiva etiquette.
This is one part of a five-part series Walking in the Valley of the Shadow. You may attend any or all topics in any location in any order.
For the third straight year, Lehrhaus, The Gamliel Institute, Sinai Memorial Chapel and The Bay Area Jewish Healing Center address the challenging issues surrounding death and dying.
