BEREAVEMENT GROUP FOR THE LOSS OF A CHILD

If you are living with the pain of having lost a child, you can find support at a new Bereavement Group offered by Jewish Community Services and Beth El Congregation.  The group is open to anyone in the community who has experienced this loss.  Beginning on October 16, the group will meet for 8 evening sessions at Beth El and will be facilitated by a JCS professional.  The group will provide a welcoming environment for people to address their feelings and concerns.  The goal is to help transform pain into hope and for group members to support one another as they work towards finding some serenity and happiness while living with their loss.

Through the sponsorship of the Beth El Rheda and Melvyn Goldman Bereavement Group, the sessions are free of charge.  Pre-registration is required.  For more information and to register, please call JCS at 410-466-9200.

At an age when many girls still dreamed of becoming a ballerina or a princess, Dr. Marcelle Machluf already knew she would be a medical researcher. Today, Dr. Machluf is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering and Food Technology where she is also its Associate Dean. Dr. Machluf came to Israel from Morocco at age one and was reared in Ashdod. After completing her army service, she received a B.Sc. in biology from Hebrew University. She continued her academic studies and received her M.Sc. and Ph.D. in biotechnology engineering from Ben Gurion University of the Negev. She was a postdoctoral research fellow at Harvard Medical School where her research focused on gene therapy, tissue engineering and the control of drug delivery in cancer therapy. Dr. Machluf joined the Technion Faculty in 2001. “ATS support made it possible for me to have a huge lab with all the instruments I wanted right at the beginning. Today, I have 10 doctoral students, one post-doc and one technician. This not only helps to advance my research, it also provides Israel with a new generation of first-rate scientists who will go on to make new discoveries and educate other young Israelis.”
