Grieving can be disorienting and isolating, and the death of a loved one to overdose can be particularly challenging. Let’s gather virtually on Tuesday evening, December 14, 2021 at 7:00 PM CST for a program of Jewish wisdom, meditation, and music with support from bereavement and addiction specialists. Two Jewish leaders will also share their personal grief journey of loss due to overdose, illuminating paths to healing.
