During the many layers upon layers of loss and trauma during the COVID pandemic, Rabbi Offit accepted an invitation to step into suicide response as her professional focus. Both personal and professional experiences with suicide loss energized her interest and research this area. Rabbi Offit and Marjie Sokol, a social worker at JF&CS of Greater Boston, created a Jewish Healing communal education program for the Greater Boston area, and with Zoom expanding their work nationally. They also co-facilitate a Suicide Loss Survivor bereavement group.
