Central Synagogue provides pastoral counseling in small, confidential group settings for members of the community who are struggling with a loved one’s illness or death of a spouse. For information about when and where these groups meet, contact Rabbi Lori Koffman.
Are you a member who is unable to leave your home? Do you know a member of the congregation like this? We have a corps of volunteers who would like to pay a visit. To request a visit, contact Jackie Pykon. Please note that we do not currently have a need for volunteer visitors.
If you know of someone who is struggling with domestic or family violence, Central Synagogue recommends they contact the Jewish Board for assistance. Click here to learn more.
