NCJW to start new session of Wife-Widow-Woman

National Council of Jewish Women-St. Louis Section will begin a new session of the Wife-Widow-Woman support group for recently widowed women on May 16. The group 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 program gives 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, which is underwritten by Nardie and Sally Stein in memory of Jean Stein Bloch.  

The new session begins Wednesday, May 16 from 5:30-7 p.m. at the NCJW-St. Louis Section offices at 295 N. Lindbergh Boulevard in Creve Coeur. The group meets bi-monthly through Oct. 17. For more information, contact Nancy Weigley at [email protected] or call NCJW at 314-993-5181.
