Grieving a Death During a Pandemic: An Evening of Support (via Zoom)

Monday, August 3, 2020 13 Av 5780

7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

The experience of grieving always feels living 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.

We 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.

This event is free of charge and is supported by the Lauri S. Bauer Foundation for Sudden Loss and JCFS Chicago.
