News: Posted July 14, 2005

DENVER - June 24, 2005 - Jewish Family Service of Colorado (JFS), a human service agency serving greater Denver, is now offering enrollment for two Rafael Spiritual Healing Center support groups. The first, a bereavement group, will help those dealing with the death of a loved one. The second, a chronic illness group, will offer support and strength for those who are dealing with chronic illness. Both groups are now open for enrollment to anyone in the Denver community.

Jewish Family Service Psychologist Dr. Laura Hockman will work in tandem with a Jewish rabbi to facilitate the groups and provide spiritual and psychological healing. Rafael Spiritual Healing Center support groups integrate Jewish traditions and rituals into the healing and learning process.

"Living with a chronic illness is a great emotional challenge, and losing a loved one can be devastating. Nobody should have to go through these circumstances alone," said Yana Vishnitsky, chief executive officer of JFS. "The support groups combine traditional Jewish practices with a modern approach to provide a sense of comfort and peace for people dealing with these challenges."

The bereavement group will begin meeting by the end of June and the chronic illness group will commence by the end of July. Both groups will consist of eight consecutive meetings, and the cost is $10 per session. Specific meeting times are based on participant availability, and will be finalized as groups are filled. To enroll in either group, or for more information, please contact Dr. Laura Hockman at Jewish Family Service of Colorado at 303-597-7777 x346 or visit

The Rafael Spiritual Healing Center was created to provide support, strength and community for people who have experienced a life crisis, such as grief, illness or care giving. The program is made possible through a grant from Rose Community Foundation.
