Jewish Grief Support Group Forming for April 2017

If you have experienced a recent loss and need support, we have a few spots left in "Good Grief: A Grief Support Group" for members of the Jewish community. We offer a safe, supportive place where you can mourn and share your personal loss. This sharing forms relationships and connections, which serve as a bridge between the past and the future. The group will meet weekly for eight weeks at the Boulder JCC beginning in April.
