Death & Mourning

To live is to die. To love is to know the pain of losing those we love. Nothing can truly prepare us for death.  At BHA we offer a variety of sources for those who are mourning the loss of a loved one, or who want to honor the memory of a loved one.  If you have any questions regarding death and mourning, please be in touch with Rabbi Brent Spodek at or 845.831.2012 x1.
