Bereavement support at RJFS

Bereavement support at RJFS

Bereavement specialists at Rockland Jewish Family Service provide counseling for people and families who are dealing with the death of someone they loved. RJFS also has bereavement support groups and assists schools and other institutions when grief counseling is needed. All bereavement services are insurance reimbursable.

RJFS’s support groups, After Shiva and Moving On, are open to people of all faiths. After Shiva is for people mourning the death of a spouse or partner, and Moving On offers spouses and partners who already have been part of a bereavement group at Rockland Jewish Family Service or elsewhere the opportunity to continue meeting in a facilitated group setting. Members discuss their challenges and experiences as they consider the process of adapting to life without their loved one.
