The aftermath of unexpected death

 10.00am – 3.15pm      

Mosaic Reform Synagogue, 39 Bessborough Road, Harrow HA1 3BS


Following so many tragic incidents recently, both nationally and in our local community, there seems to be an ever-increasing risk and occurrence of sudden or unexpected death. The media have covered extensively events such as the Grenfell Tower fire, terrorist incidents in London and Manchester, knife and gun crime on our streets and events such as the vehicle collision with three young teenagers in Hayes.

What special skills do we need, or considerations should we make, when talking to family members and close friends who have to cope with these situations? Our 37th Annual Conference “ALL OF A SUDDEN” hopes to point the way.
