"Grief and the Holidays"

​Adjustment to the death of someone close to you does not simply come with time. The work of grief demands that you deal with all the feelings that loss engenders. This work takes psychic and physical energy that can leave you unable to deal with the extra demands of the holiday season.

JFS is cohosting a “Grief and the Holidays” workshop with Congregation Shir Hadash on Sunday, December 18, 10:00 - 11:30am in the Shir Hadash chapel.

Lisa Warner, LCSW, JFS Director of Clinical and Social Services will lead this FREE workshop, open to the community. Sign up at Shir Hadash's website by clicking here.
