Bereavement Support

Bereavement specialists at Rockland Jewish Family Service provide counseling for individuals and families who have experienced the loss of a loved one. We run bereavement support groups and assist schools and other institutions when grief counseling is needed.

Our “After Shiva” and “Moving On” support groups are open to people of all faiths.

After Shiva Group
The After Shiva group provides a safe space for members to grieve the passing of a spouse or partner in an understanding and supportive community. Throughout the six weekly sessions, the group learns about the grieving process as they reflect on the past, learn to live in the present and plan for their future.

Moving On Group
The Moving On group offers spouses and partners who have previously attended a bereavement group at Rockland Jewish Family Service or elsewhere the opportunity to continue meeting in a facilitated group setting. Members share their challenges and experiences as they discuss the process of adapting to life without their loved one.

All Bereavement Services are insurance reimbursable. For more information please contact Carol H. King, LCSW at 845.354.2121 ext.142 or via email:
