Illness, Grief and Bereavement

Illness and loss can be a difficult and challenging part of our lives, and it's important to remember that we don't have to go through these experiences alone. At Melbourne Hebrew Congregation, we understand the pain and sorrow that comes with illness and loss, and we're here to offer our support and assistance in any way we can. 

If a loved one is going through a difficult time with their health, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. Our pastoral care and spiritual support team is here to provide comfort and guidance during these trying times. 

In the unfortunate event of a loved one passing away, our community is here to support you through every step of the grieving process. We can assist in funeral arrangements, provide a compassionate Rabbi to preside over the funeral, organise a minyan and prayers during the shiva, and offer emotional support to those experiencing the loss. 

As time goes by and you continue to navigate life after your loss, know that you are not alone. Melbourne Hebrew Congregation is here to provide ongoing support and invite you to receive an Aliyah in honour of your loved one's memory. We understand that healing is a gradual process, and we are here to offer our support and care for as long as you need it.
