This six-week class is inspired by Rabbi David Wolpe’s book “Making Loss Matter: Creating Meaning in Difficult Times,” which explores six kinds of loss — home, dreams, self, love, faith, and life. In his book, Rabbi Wolpe examines how we can use loss as a source of strength rather than despair, and as a generator of purpose and hope.  Woven throughout each class session are teachings from a variety of traditional and contemporary Jewish sources, teachings from other traditions (particularly Buddhism), experiential practices, storytelling, and opportunities for self-reflection and chevruta/small-group discussion.  Led by Tivona Reith, a retired hospice chaplain.

NOTES:  

Participants are encouraged to pre-purchase the book (available used on-line) by early January 2024.  Four free copies of the book have been made available at the Havurah Library on a first-come basis (by the end of December 2023), and there is one additional copy that can be checked out from the Havurah Library collection.

Each class session will be recorded, and information will be provided on how to access the recordings in case you miss a session.

A Google Docs space will be set up so class members can access self-reflection worksheets and other class materials.
