Grieving A Death During A Pandemic: An Evening of Support with JCFS

Wednesday, December 2, 2020 16 Kislev 5781

7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

The experience of grieving always feels like visiting a foreign place, feeling disoriented and isolated in the new reality of life without the person we loved. COVID-19 has increased our isolation as it keeps us from grieving in community.

JCFS will come together virtually (via Zoom) to explore alternative ways to mourn and grieve while we gain comfort in being together. 

The evening will include wisdom from a cantor, a grief counselor, and a community member grieving a new death. Through music, mindfulness, poems, and pictures we will honor the loved ones who have died and our own grief. You are invited to share a photo of your loved one(s) during the event. 

Presenters include: Cantor David Berger of KAM Isaiah Israel, Laurie Garber-Amram of JCFS Chicago, Tracey Lipsig Kite of JCFS Chicago and Dr. Nancy Wagner, Superintendent of River Trails School District 26 (Mt. Prospect) and a member of Congregation B’nai Jehoshua Beth Elohim in Deerfield.
