Nancy Rosenthal, LCSW, a therapist at the Jewish Family & Children’s Services of Central NJ, holds a five-session support group for widows and widowers on Thursdays, from 11 a.m. to noon, at the Lavy House Senior Resource Center in Westfield. The JFSCNJ group is in conjunction with Temple Emanu-El of Westfield. The dates are November 2, 9, and 16, and December 7 and 14. Parking is in the synagogue lot.
The group will explore how grief over the loss of a spouse or partner impacts our daily lives. According to Ms. Rosenthal, “The group will provide a safe environment to share feelings and gain support while learning to cope with the loss of a spouse or partner.”
The program is open to everyone at no charge, but preregistration is required; email Nancy Rosenthal at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (908) 352-8375, ext. 234.
