We are here to help you. Please call JFCS to speak with a counselor or rabbi today: 415-449-1212
“The recognition that I felt from my therapist at JFCS was so comforting. Life is now moving in a beautiful way towards our next chapter.” – Gal, JFCS client and mother of baby Tikva
The Memory Garden: A Sacred Place to Reflect and Heal
The Memory Garden, located within Sinai Memorial Chapel’s Eternal Home Cemetery in Colma, provides a dedicated space where families who have experienced miscarriage or baby loss can come to reflect, meditate, and mourn.
This beautiful, first-of-its-kind garden establishes a communal space for those who are grieving.
Beyond the Garden
JFCS’ Bereavement and Healing Services, in collaboration with Sinai Memorial Chapel’s Memory Garden and in cooperation with community organizations, synagogues, clergy, and the Bay Area medical community, is raising awareness about the vital support that is available to families experiencing pregnancy-related loss.
We are here to help medical practitioners, social workers, and therapeutic clinicians communicate with their patients about the various options available to them after experiencing such a loss.
