Coming towards the High Holy Days, it is a good time to look at the year that has passed and to acknowledge the moments of challenge, grief and joy we may have been through.


With this in mind, we have created a series of JMM sessions to support each of us through the highs and lows of our life journey.


Please do join us for what promises to be an inspiring series of sessions to take us through this period.
