The death of someone we care about can leave us with a range of emotions and reactions. Accepting support from others helps us cope with grief and adjust to life after our loss.
JCS Grief Counselors offer support, guidance, comfort, and hope to people of all ages. Counseling, support groups, workshops, and experiential programs attend to the holistic needs – physical, emotional, cognitive, social, and spiritual – of those who have experienced loss.
Find information about upcoming groups and programs in the Featured Resources section below and on the JCS calendar.
The Mitchell David Center for Hope & Healing supports children, teens, young adults, and families who have experienced a loved one’s death, particularly if that loved one was a child.
Age-appropriate programs, groups, and activities help parents and siblings throughout their lives – immediately after a death and through all life stages when grief reappears.
Support is provided by the Mitchell David Endowment Fund. Additional support for children’s grief services is provided by the Zimmerman Fund for Children.

This is an unprecedented period in our lives. Right now, being with our friends, family, and community, which is an integral part of our Jewish tradition, is not deemed safe. People are having funerals and grieving alone.
