Rockland JFS offers help to mourners

Groups are forming to help people who are grieving the loss of a spouse or companion.

The “After Shiva” group provides a safe space for members to grieve the death of a spouse or partner in an understanding and supportive community. Throughout the six-weekly sessions, the group learns about the grieving process as members reflect on the past, learn to live in the present, and plan for their future.

If you or someone you know could benefit from the group, reach out to RJFS. Rockland Jewish Family Services is open to people of all faiths. Email reception@rjfs.org, go to www.rjfs.org, or call (845) 354-2121, ext. 140.
