Grantee Work: Winter 2022
COMMUNAL LOSS & ADAPTATION PROJECT
Thursdays, April 28 - June 9; 1-2:30 pm ET. In Spring 2022, the Communal Loss and Adaptation Project (a Project of SVARA) will host a virtual queer Jewish spiritual bereavement support group for people who are mourning individual losses, in an era of pandemic and climate crisis. These losses do not have to be pandemic or climate related, but we will tend to individual grief within the context of this era of vast global change.
