Rafael Spiritual Healing Center Offers Support for Denver's Grief and Illness Stricken
Jewish Family Service of Colorado Launches Healing Center for Support and Strength in Times of Crisis.

DENVER - March 15, 2005 - Jewish Family Service of Colorado (JFS), a Denver-based nonprofit organization, today launched the Rafael Spiritual Healing Center, a program that provides support, strength and community for people who have experienced a life crisis, such as death, grief, illness or emotional trauma. The program, which integrates Jewish traditions and rituals into the learning and healing process, is now open for enrollment to anyone in the Denver community.

"People who have suffered a loss in their lives have numerous options, both positive and negative, to deal with grief," said Yana Vishnitsky, chief executive officer of JFS. "The Rafael Spiritual Healing Center provides a positive, spiritual means of healing, and a support system that includes a spiritual leader, psychologist and other individuals who are dealing with a similar loss. Anyone dealing with grief can benefit from the program."

Jewish Community Chaplain Rabbi Eliot Baskin and Jewish Family Service Psychologist Dr. Laura Hockman are co-facilitators of the Rafael Spiritual Healing Center, and will work in tandem to provide the spiritual and psychological components of the healing program. Initially, the healing program will offer spiritual support groups and counseling, and will later expand to include a full resource center of books, tapes, pamphlets and other materials focused on dealing with grief. This program is made possible through a grant from Rose Community Foundation.

The Rafael Spiritual Healing Center is offering group sessions, consisting of eight consecutive meetings, beginning in late March. The cost of the program is $10 per session and meeting times will be based on participant availability. Individual support services are also available. To enroll in the program or for more information, please contact Jewish Family Service of Colorado at 303-597-5000 or visit www.jewishfamilyservice.org.
