The Book of Job - When Bad Things Happen to a Good Person with Rabbi Harold Kushner on Sunday, November 4, 7 pm, JCC 

From one our most trusted spiritual advisors, a thoughtful illuminating guide to the most fascinating of biblical texts and how it can teach us about living in a troubled world.  Rabbi Kushner is well known for his book, When Bad Things Happen to Good People. He has written 13 books and has been chosen by the Roman Catholic Organization as one of fifty people who have made the world a better place in the past half-century. This program is presented free of charge. Osher Marin JCC Hoytt Theater.  RSVP by contacting Alaina Yoakum at ayoakum@marinjcc.org or 415.444.8080.


While grief is a normal response to loss, we know from practical experience and from the teachings of our tradition, that being with an understanding community can help bring comfort and healing to the mourner. 

Presented by Bay Area Jewish Healing Center and Rodef Sholom and facilitated by Rabbi Natan Fenner, this group will provide a supportive context with both general and specifically Jewish resources for the mourning process. This group meets for 10 Wednesdays, August 8 through October 10, 4:30 - 6:30 pm, Lefferts Library. The group is especially suited for participants who have lost loved ones in the past year or so. Pre-registration is required; we will not be able to accommodate drop-ins.
