Abstract

Group therapeutic benefits may be provided by the performance of religiously prescribed ritualistic activities in an emotionally supportive group environment This brief paper describes the author's experience of group therapeutic benefit from an early morning prayer meeting, particularly from the ritualistic act of Kaddish recitation in a group setting, for his own mourning experience following the death of his mother.
