Modern Loss: An Evening of Community & Candid Conversation About Grief Featuring Rebecca Soffer

Hosted by

Join Rabbi Jennifer Kaluzny, Rabbi Michael Moskowitz and guest speaker, Rebecca Soffer, for a candid, warm, and even humorous conversation exploring Rebecca’s book, The Modern Loss Handbook, and the global movement to destigmatize the universal experience of grief while encouraging people to find meaning and live richly.

The Modern Loss Handbook is what author and Modern Loss cofounder Rebecca Soffer wished she had after her parents died, offering a welcoming space in which to grow thoughts and feelings as they evolve and create a personal roadmap toward resilience. With warmth, wit and disarming humor, Rebecca and the rabbis will unpack the wisdom of the book and discuss how the long arc of loss can be woven into our lives in a way that is practical, creative, comforting, provoking, and, finally, hopeful. You can purchase your own copy of The Modern Loss Handbook via Amazon here (www.amazon.com/dp/0762474815).

This event is intended for adults and will include a conversation with Rebecca Soffer, moderated by Rabbis Jennifer Kaluzny and Michael Moskowitz, followed by strolling refreshments. Due to the generosity of donors, there is no charge to attend, but advance registration is required. Please RSVP by Monday, April 8th.
