JFS Announces New Jewish Grief Support Group

The Jewish Grief Group is for anyone that identifies with a Jewish identity and is grieving. Open to all forms of death loss. Open to different relationships to Judaism (culturally and religiously).

Each Group will have a different topic/theme that will help provide psychoeducation and tools to support people through their grief journey. Each session will also include a ritual, prayer, reading, topic, etc. from Judaism that could be supportive and add to the discussion.

JFS is happy to announce Danielle Rifkin, LPC, ATR as our new facilitator. After graduating from Naropa University, Danielle has worked with a variety of settings and populations. As a mindfulness-based therapist she has a lot of experience working with grief, serious illness, spirituality, shifting out of unhealthy patterns, finding balance, anxiety and depression. Specifically, she has worked in hospitals, hospices and in homes supporting people through their grief journeys. She brings a strong psychoeducational understanding and a depth of compassion helpful for grief.
