Zoom in My Room - Tuesday Group Conversation

After participating in the Zoom ritual services that CBE is offering, Robyn realized that as much as she enjoyed the services spiritually, she really just enjoyed seeing faces, many faces, a group of faces. So she decided to launch a Zoom group called “Zoom in my Room - Group Conversation." Bring a cup of coffee, a sparkling beverage or just yourself and let's have a get together, share a funny story, share a good idea or just smile. We all need contact with others.

Pozez JCC Widow/Widower Support Group
  • Monthly, Tuesdays at 5:15 PM
  • Led by Dr. Rebecca Fleischer
  • Please contact Shari Berman at  shari.berman@thej.org for the registration link.

This monthly program, organized by the Pozez JCC of Northern Virginia and hosted by Congregation Beth Emeth, will be meeting online through Zoom while in-person meetings are not possible. (As of November 2021, we are meeting in person again!) This free support group is open to anyone who has recently and not-so-recently lost a husband, wife or partner. Join us for an open forum frank discussion with a focus on grief, bereavement and continuing on after great loss.

  • 2nd & 4th Monday, 8:00 PM (7:30 when in person)
  • Intermediate conversation level and above
  • If interested, contact susan@bethemeth.org.

A very informal, friendly group of mostly Beth Emeth members who meet for friendly conversation, usually in homes twice a month, but currently alternating between "meeting" on Zoom and in person (vaccinated only). While members come and go, the group has been in existence for over 20 years. During this time of meeting remotely is a great chance to check us out!
