Bereavement Support Group

A new Bereavement Support Group via Zoom begins on Wednesday,  January 6 from 1:30-2:45 p.m. Facilitated by Community Chaplain Rabbi Jonathan R. Katz, the group offers the opportunity to learn how others are dealing with grief, examine ways loss can impact us, gain coping insights, cultivate resilience and discover renewed hope. Though meeting in person would be optimal, previous groups have found engagement through Zoom to be very helpful.                                      

Especially during the social isolation associated with Covid-19, it is important for those who have suffered the loss of a loved one to have time to share and find support. Grief brings sadness but there also times of discovery, gratitude and even laughter in the group. 

Sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee and JFCS of the Suncoast, the group will meet on six successive Wednesdays through February 10.  Pre-registration is required. Cost is $36.00. For more information contact Rabbi Katz at: or by phone at 941-366-2224 ext 166.
