Making Sense of Suffering: A Jewish Guide to Grief
March 20 @ 10:30 pm - March 21 @ 12:00 am
When tragedy enters our lives and the lives of those we care about, Jewish
wisdom and rituals can help us navigate through hardship. To learn more about
Jewish responses and rituals that take us through mourning and arrive at a
place of healing, we’ll meet with Rabbi Jennifer Kaluzny of Temple Israel and
the Jewish Hospice Chaplaincy Network.
There is no absolute right or wrong way for any of us to grieve. This event is
designed to provide an understanding of the grieving process through a Jewish
lens. The conversation is geared toward those who want to learn how to handle
the grief process themselves and those who wish to support somebody in their
life who may be grieving.
This small group gathering is limited to the first 10 people and will be held
at a private residence in Franklin. Location information will be provided upon
About Rabbi Jennifer Kaluzny:
Rabbi Kaluzny has been a Rabbi at Temple Israel since her ordination from
Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in 2004 and also works for
the Jewish Hospice and Chaplaincy Network. She was deeply affected by the
death of her beloved Aunt Pauline in a hospice in Chicago when she was 19, and
promised then that her work as a rabbi would include working with hospice
patients and their families. Today, Rabbi Kaluzny helps guide Temple Israel
families through the questions, decisions and Jewish issues that might arise
at the end of life.
Thank you to our Balance chair: Daniel Cohen
