Jewish Family Services is hosting a new Grief and Loss Support Group for 2019 that continues for 10 sessions. The group begins January 16, and meets the first and third Wednesday of each month at 2-3:30 p.m. in Conference Room A at the Jewish Community Campus. The group, which is free, provides the opportunity to address issues of loss and grief within a Jewish spiritual context in a warm and confidential environment. The Rabbinical Association of Greater Kansas City also sponsors the group.
The group is co-facilitated by Rabbi Mark Levin and Erica Bench, MSW. The support group is for individuals grieving from the death of a spousal partner, life partner or immediate adult family member. Rabbi Levin will offer feedback based upon his Jewish spiritual background.
Those who have attended the support group have said it is the only place where people understand what they are going through.
While there is no charge to attend the support group, those wishing to participate (or who would like additional information) should register by contacting Debra Orbuch Grayson, JFS Clinical Manager at (913) 327-8298 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
