Grieving A Death During A Pandemiccjfunerals2stg
Wednesday, June 17 | 7:30-8:30pm
The experience of grieving and the new reality of life without the person we loved can often leave us feeling disoriented, especially now when we cannot grieve as a community.
Let’s come together virtually to learn alternative ways to mourn and grieve while we gain comfort from being together. The evening will include wisdom from a rabbi, a grief counselor, and a community member grieving a new death. We will use music, prayer, poems, and pictures to honor the loved ones who have died and our own grief. You are invited to have a photo of your loved one(s) and/or a candle to light during the event.
This event is free of charge and is supported by the Lauri S. Bauer Foundation for Sudden Loss.
If you have questions, contact Diane Halivni, or call 847.745.5459.
