Making Sense of Suffering: A Jewish Guide to Grief

Hosted by Jewish Federation NEXTGen Detroit

Young Adults

  • Mon, Mar 20
  • 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM EDT
  • Private Residence


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 registration.  



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
