A group for those in mourning is meeting at Dorshei Emet Congregation, 18 Cleve Rd. in Hampstead. It will run for a total of six weeks on Monday afternoons.
The first session had six participants mourning the loss of loved ones and the group is open to people from all faith communities.
Howard Richler, who is spearheading the group, said that dealing with the loss of a loved one in a group setting was helpful to him after the loss of his wife, Ruth, 19 years ago. The group will be led by a trained psychologist. If you’d like to join the group or know someone who might benefit, please contact Howard Richler at firstname.lastname@example.org. Anyone can join as late as the third session on Nov. 11.
If you miss that date, keep in touch with Howard about upcoming meetings.
