"A Light in the Darkness" Wednesday, December 17 at 7 PM in the ECP Multi Purpose Room.Winter can be an especially difficult time for those who have experienced a loss.  Please join Rabbi Amy Cohen from Congregation Beth Shalom, Rabbi Daniel Millner from congregation Tiferet Israel and social worker Carlye Levine of Jewish Family Service for "A Light in the Darkness".  Join others in our community who have experienced a loss as we explore ways to find comfort during this season while honoring the light of our loved ones.
