We offer stories and resources as a way to share with a much wider audience what we normally would to help support in-person clients and partners. These collections draw from the wisdom of our community, and our Rabbis, and from the comforting traditions of our ancestors before us.
The Healing Center rabbis are witness to the power of connection through story. With love and respect, we share these stories so that they can live on beyond the moment, helping to fight isolation and inspire deeper reflection and connection in the wider community.
Browse through our collection of grief-related resources. Learn more about a wide variety of issues, from shiva customs and practices, to how to support those who are grieving during the holidays, to prayers for coming together after a disaster.
Torah Reflections™ are short commentaries and reflection prompts, based on the Hebrew scriptural reading cycle and themes from the Jewish holidays. These wide-ranging pieces are written by people immersed in the worlds of illness and healing. Torah Reflections™ are available on our website. You can also receive them in your inbox by signing up for the bi-weekly emails.
The Healing Center is happy to share community resources beyond what we are able to offer. View these links to learn more about additional bereavement support, hospice agencies, LGBT spiritual resources, caregiver resources, mental health resources, and more.
