Pregnancy and Infant Loss Memorial Havdalah Service

Saturday, October 17
6:00 PM - Online via Zoom

Please join our Jewish community as we create a service to give support, love, and remembrance to those who have experienced tragedy during pregnancy or soon thereafter.

Families do not have to grieve in silence.

We will join together to mark our experiences and share words of peace and comfort in a safe space.  Soon after, we will hold a brief Havdalah service marking the separation from Shabbat into the secular week, followed by a candle lighting recognizing family loss.

Following the Havdalah service, you are invited to stay on the chat to meet other families and learn more about resources in our community available to help through times of grief.

Advance registration is required.  Please register to receive the zoom link.  Registration will close on Friday, October 16 at 3pm.

For any questions, please contact Karli at kefron@mainejewish.org
