Please join us for Grief in the Midst of Light–an Azkarah service of healing and memory during Chanukah, led by the rabbis of the Bay Area Jewish Healing Center and facilitators from the COVID Grief Network, on Tuesday November 30, at 4:00pm (Pacific Time).

The online Azkarah will offer comfort and support to anyone mourning the deaths of individual people in our lives, or grieving communal losses.

With ritual and poetry and other teachings, the Azkarah gathering gives us an opportunity to honor loved ones, acknowledge communal and global suffering, reflect on this prolonged period of pandemic, and be comforted by our community in its full diversity and broad range of religious thinking.
