M’kom Shalom: A Jewish Support Group for Survivors of a Close One’s Suicide
AFSP makes the support group listings directory for suicide loss survivors available as a public service and does not run, recommend, endorse, or fund any of the groups listed. In addition, we do not monitor individual groups and only update information as it is made available to us by the facilitators and/or sponsoring organizations.
Please follow up with the listed contact to ensure their group is still active and confirm both meeting times and location.
135 West 50th Street
New York,New York10020
The group meets continuously throughout the year. Meetings are held monthly on the second Wednesday of the month from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.
Rabbi Simkha Y. Weintraub, LCSW
Our group is open to all adults, and to all impacted by a relative’s or close friend’s suicide.
This group is open, which means that new members may join at any time.
Call or email to speak with the above contact before joining the group.
Mental health professional
The group is free of charge, but every November/December we seek to raise funds to cover our costs so there is an annual solicitation.
Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services
A phone conversation with Rabbi Simkha Y. Weintraub, LCSW, is required before coming to the group.
Although we make every attempt to stick to the 2nd Wednesday night of the month, please confirm meeting dates during this call.
