Walking Through the Valley: Grieving with Your Community After the Death of a Spouse

Meets every 3rd Wednesday of the month, 3:30 pm, Sanctuary

When a spouse or partner dies, a hole is left in your heart.  You are not alone in your grief and loss.  We invite you to join your Rodef Sholom community as we explore how we can support each other emotionally and spirtually.  We will examine new and, at times, challenging dynamincs with friends and family while creating new identities without  spouses or partners.  Each meeting will be a confidential and safe place to gather together.  Groups will be lay-led with occasional guest speakers.

The Return - Racial Justice Working Group

We will screen The Return, an up close and personal look at the first time in our nation’s history citizens voted to shorten the sentences of the currently incarcerated. It explores the legacy of mass incarceration and the difficulties of implementing reform - offering both a heartbreaking story of the America’s prison system, but also a story of resilience and hope.  Meets in the library on the second floor of the Osher Marin JCC.
