Fertility journeys can be uprooting experiences. Uprooting from one's self, one's community, one's vision for the future, and one's body. These monthly small dinner groups will be led by a Spiritual Advisor who will guide participants through experiential learning that aims to ease the pain people feel when moving through Jewish and secular holidays without the children they so deeply desire. These struggles may derive from pregnancy loss, miscarriage, infertility, secondary infertility, non-traditional family building and any other challenges that you may be facing on your journey toward growing your family. Holidays in our spring's program cycle include Passover, Mother's Day, Father's Day and Shabbat.
ROOTS groups are offered in Brookline, Needham, and Cambridge, MA, and will take place in the home of a community member or a partner synagogue.
