Grieving a Death During a Pandemic: An Evening of Support

The experience of grieving always feels like visiting a foreign place, feeling disoriented and isolated in the new reality of life without the person we loved. COVID-19 has increased our isolation as it keeps us from grieving in community.

We will come together virtually (via Zoom) to explore alternative ways to mourn and grieve while we gain comfort in being together. 

The evening will include wisdom from a cantor, a grief counselor, and a community member grieving a new death. Through music, mindfulness, poems, and pictures we will honor the loved ones who have died and our own grief. You are invited to share a photo of your loved one(s) during the event. 

This event is free of charge and is supported by the Lauri S. Bauer Foundation for Sudden Loss.

Virtual Annual Pfeffer Family Forum: Lessons from Elie Wiesel for

Memory, madness, faith, friendship, language — these were the lifelong preoccupations of survivor, witness, and Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel. But Wiesel was also a teacher and writer who left us a treasure trove of tales and moral teachings that we can apply to today’s world.

Join Rabbi Ariel Burger, a devoted protégé of Professor Wiesel, author of the award-winning book, Witness: Lessons from Elie Wiesel’s Classroom, artist, activist and scholar, as he shares insights into some of today’s most complex issues: As we struggle with renewed questions of racial justice, hatred, power, and polarization – all against the backdrop of a global pandemic – what do Elie Wiesel’s teachings tell us? How can they empower us to not only survive these challenging times, but make moral sense of them? Come and hear from one of Wiesel’s closest students who is carrying on the legacy of his teacher.

Junior Baker

This group was developed to help your child participate in a fun family activity and develop a lifelong skill, baking! Similar to our “I Can Cook” group, each week a new recipe will be featured while focusing on hand strength and dexterity needed to open containers, using utensils, mixing, pouring, etc. These skills also enhance academic and self-care skills.

Your child will also work on the ability to follow a sequence of steps and increase attention for a multi-step activity while using a recipe and during a clean-up routine. Finally, your child will have the opportunity to virtually interact with others in the group or with a family member or friend in their home, which promotes positive social skills and interactions.

Recommended for children 6 years or older. Contact Megan Kowalski for registration and fee information.

Virtual Lunch & Learn: "Saving Free Speech... from Itself"

Lately the phrase “freedom of speech” has become a polarizing force used to justify everything from severe attacks on personhood, social media bullying, and even criminal behavior. What are the parameters of our First Amendment right to freedom of speech? How might we understand the difference between protected speech and unprotected speech, or whether the government presently has the right to regulate speech at all? Should the alt-right in Charlottesville in 2017 have received the same right to protest as did the neo-Nazis in Skokie back in 1977?

Join noted essayist, novelist, law professor, and child of Holocaust Survivors, Thane Rosenbaum, as he takes on the cultural lightning rod of free speech. Author of the recently published "Saving Free Speech ... from Itself," Rosenbaum provocatively confronts the confusions and contradictions around free speech, examining what is at the heart of this pressing 21st-century debate.

Junior Baker

This group was developed to help your child participate in a fun family activity and develop a lifelong skill, baking! Similar to our “I Can Cook” group, each week a new recipe will be featured while focusing on hand strength and dexterity needed to open containers, using utensils, mixing, pouring, etc. These skills also enhance academic and self-care skills.

Your child will also work on the ability to follow a sequence of steps and increase attention for a multi-step activity while using a recipe and during a clean-up routine. Finally, your child will have the opportunity to virtually interact with others in the group or with a family member or friend in their home, which promotes positive social skills and interactions.

Recommended for children 6 years or older. Contact Megan Kowalski for registration and fee information.

Junior Baker

This group was developed to help your child participate in a fun family activity and develop a lifelong skill, baking! Similar to our “I Can Cook” group, each week a new recipe will be featured while focusing on hand strength and dexterity needed to open containers, using utensils, mixing, pouring, etc. These skills also enhance academic and self-care skills.

Your child will also work on the ability to follow a sequence of steps and increase attention for a multi-step activity while using a recipe and during a clean-up routine. Finally, your child will have the opportunity to virtually interact with others in the group or with a family member or friend in their home, which promotes positive social skills and interactions.

Recommended for children 6 years or older. Contact Megan Kowalski for registration and fee information.

This group was developed to help your child participate in a fun family activity and develop a lifelong skill, baking! Similar to our “I Can Cook” group, each week a new recipe will be featured while focusing on hand strength and dexterity needed to open containers, using utensils, mixing, pouring, etc. These skills also enhance academic and self-care skills.

Your child will also work on the ability to follow a sequence of steps and increase attention for a multi-step activity while using a recipe and during a clean-up routine. Finally, your child will have the opportunity to virtually interact with others in the group or with a family member or friend in their home, which promotes positive social skills and interactions.

Recommended for children 6 years or older. Contact Megan Kowalski for registration and fee information.

Similar to our “I Can Cook” group, each week a new recipe will be featured while focusing on hand strength and dexterity needed to open containers, using utensils, mixing, pouring, etc. These skills also enhance academic and self-care skills.

Your child will also work on the ability to follow a sequence of steps and increase attention for a multi-step activity while using a recipe and during a clean-up routine. Finally, your child will have the opportunity to virtually interact with others in the group or with a family member or friend in their home, which promotes positive social skills and interactions.

Recommended for children 6 years or older. Contact Megan Kowalski for registration and fee information.
