When our loved ones are ill every aspect of their lives is affected. The same is true of those responsible for their care. This Havurah will provide a time and space once a month to be with others who are traveling a similar road – whether it be a life partner, a child, sibling, friend or relative for whom you are the primary caregiver.
My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer a year ago and it has been challenging in every way – though deeply sad, it has also taught us so much. I wanted an opportunity to share and learn together with other caregivers going through a similar experience. I envision creating a time on a shabbos afternoon once a month to check in with each other, and share resources we have found – Jewish resources, healing resources, readings, prayers, poems, films…. This is a havurah – so together we will create this group to meet our needs.
