Bereaved Jewish Families of Ontario

Group Name: Bereaved Jewish Families of Ontario

Description: Bereaved Jewish Families of Ontario offers programs and services to individuals, families and groups throughout the Jewish community of Ontario who are affected by the death of a child.

Group members help each other and often learn to educate others in the language of grief. The bereaved help the bereaved with group meetings several times a year, facilitated by two bereaved parents, and guided by a professional advisor (usually bereaved as well.) One of our primary goals is to let the grieving persons in the community know that they are not alone, there are others who are going through the same thing who are there to support and guide them. Welcome to Bereaved Jewish Families of Ontario. Bereaved Jewish Families believes in the uniqueness of the Jewish way in death and mourning.

Where: 4600 Bathurst Street, 6th Floor | Toronto, ON M2R 3V3

When: Any bereaved person, relative or friend may attend the meetings. Call for further information.
