NCJW starts new session of Wife-Widow-Woman support group on Jan. 7

In January, NCJW-St. Louis Section will begin a new session of the Wife-Widow-Woman support group for recently widowed women. The program aims to bridge the gap between grief and growth reducing the sense of isolation experienced from loss of a spouse.  Led by Sylvia Nissenboim, LCSW, the Wife-Widow-Woman program helps participants on their personal journey to becoming more independent single women after living as a couple. 

“People who are experiencing like emotions are able to be the most supportive as one rebuilds after a loss,” said Eleanor Rosenbaum.

Wife-Widow-Woman works to provide a source of comfort, giving participants a safe place to talk about the issues that they may be unable to discuss with family and friends. All recently widowed women are welcome to participate and may be of any age, race or religious background. There is no cost to join the group as it is underwritten by Nardie and Sally Stein in memory of Jean Stein Bloch. 

The next session begins Wednesday, Jan. 7 at the NCJW-St. Louis Section offices, 295 N. Lindbergh Boulevard in Creve Coeur.  Participants must pre-register in order to join the group, which meets twice a month, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. through June. For more information, contact Heather Silverman at [email protected] or call the NCJW office at 314-993-5181.
