Please note:  Masks and proof of vaccination for those eligible are required.  

The weeks leading up to the Days of Awe are a time on the Jewish calendar for reflection and remembrance that also mirror and amplify the daily lived experience of loss and memory. 

Join Rebecca Soffer, Berkshires resident and co-founder of Modern Loss, a global movement and platform of content, resources, and community focused on eradicating the stigma around grief while also encouraging people to find meaning and live richly for a discussion of her new book, THE MODERN LOSS HANDBOOK: An Interactive Guide to Moving Through Grief and Building Your Resilience.   

Books will be available for purchase and booksigning after the program.  Purchase the book here and a portion of the proceeds will be donated back to the local Bookstore in Lenox.
