Mourning And Grief: After The Death

This course was offered in Winter/Spring, 2018.

In this essential session we will address Kaddish basics, what the Jewish tradition says about mourning and grief and memory, and how to gather community support. We will create a safe place to share special cases such as stillbirth and neonatal death; sudden, and traumatic death. We will explore the customs of the first year and talk about “When does grief really end?”

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.
