West London Synagogue rightly claims to serve its membership in many aspects of their lives, from birth through each of life’s cycles. To do so, it relies on its members who contribute in so many ways. Helping others is probably the most rewarding of all activities. Perhaps the most neglected are those who suffer the loss of a loved one. Maybe a parent, a relative, even a child. Or a close colleague or special friend. We at WLS have our own ‘Bereavement Visitors Group’ but it is tiny in comparison with the numbers that it might be supporting. We are each unique in the way that we may ‘accept’ bereavement and only a proportion of us want to experience the help that may come from a trained Bereavement Visitor. People from all walks of life may become trained visitors. The more such visitors we have the better service we can offer.
