Description

When Things Fall Apart: Jewish Approaches to Illness, Death, and Mourning
Join Us for This Three-Session Group
Tuesdays, January 16, 23, and 30, 2018
7:00-9:00pm


At some time each of us finds ourselves struggling with illness, mourning a loved one, facing death ourselves, or otherwise grappling with loss, suffering, and grief.


Jewish tradition offers deep wisdom for these life challenges, teaching us to look at life's difficulties, to seek strength, wisdom, and healing, and to enrich our lives by discovering meaningful ways to support one another.

Contemplating loss, dying, and death we create clarity of purpose in the present. What gives my life meaning? How do I want to connect with people in my life who are ill or facing death? How do I want to be remembered? Considering these questions, we learn how we want to live now. Being with others who are pondering such profound issues can be supportive, enlightening, and inspiring.

Jewish Gateways' three-session group exploring these questions will be led by Rabbi Bridget Wynne. It will offer a chance to speak our minds and our hearts in a safe, welcoming, and supportive space. There will be opportunities to discuss personal experiences and challenges in small groups during each session.

HOW: This three-part series is offered as a unit, not a drop-in group. The fee for the series is $75.

WHO: All are welcome. You don't have to be Jewish to draw on the riches of Jewish wisdom. Feel free to share information about this group with others who might be interested.

QUESTIONS: Rabbi Bridget welcomes your questions by email or at 510-410-0622.
