Wednesdays

Our Zoom Mourner’s Support Group began last spring as a way to pierce some of the isolation for those in mourning during the pandemic. Our weekly grief support group is for TBE members who lost a loved one in recent months. We meet from 10 to 11 a.m. on Wednesdays, starting with a check in; then we share our experiences of the past week. Meetings close with the study of a brief passage related to grief and healing. No extended commitment is necessary to participate; come for a single session or join us each week. To receive the Zoom link, RSVP to Dafna Weintraub at dweintraub@tbegreatneck.org or 516-487-0900, ext. 116.

Join educator David Woolfe for Adult Ed: Hebrew for Prayer Reading and Understanding on Wednesdays at 7 p.m. This class will help students apply Hebrew proficiency to prayer participation and understanding.
