June 18, 2020, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Sponsored by the Westchester Board of Rabbis, Kol Hazzanim—the Westchester Community of Cantors, UJA-Federation of NY, Westchester Jewish Community Services (WJCS) and the Westchester Jewish Council.
Over the last weeks and months, many of us have experienced grief and loss as a result of the pandemic. Some of us have lost loved ones and friends, either from COVID-19 or from other causes, and have had to mourn them without the comfort of our customary mourning practices. Others have lost health, jobs, community, or a sense of routine and safety. Please join us as we gather together as a greater Westchester Jewish community to acknowledge all our grief and memorialize those we have lost.
The service will be followed by a dialogue between Rabbi Pamela Wax, WJCS Spiritual Care Coordinator, and Gillian Rittmaster, LCSW, WJCS Bereavement and Pathways to Care Coordinator, about grief and loss in the time of COVID-19.
