MORSL faith-based group support for Jewish-identified students

"Faith-based support for Jewish-identified Students" in teal letters, gold star of David, MORSL McGill and M logos.

Dates and Times: MONDAYS 9AM-10AM from January 22 - February 26, 2024.

The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life (MORSL) is partnering with trained wellness facilitators at McGill who come from relevant cultural and faith backgrounds to offer space for faith-based groups to help McGill students manage the spiritual and emotional distress surrounding events in the Middle East and in the news or social media.

This group is for students who identify as Jewish across the faith and cultural spectrum as well as different levels of observance. Group discussion is facilitated by McGill wellness professionals who are Jewish-identified, and is supported by MORSL staff with special contributions from Rabbi Ellen Greenspan, one of MORSL's volunteer Jewish faith leaders from the Montreal community. The group is grounded in the principles of confidentiality and mutual respect. No electronic devices permitted.

Space is limited for this in-person group. There are several sessions planned over the semester that you can join. Each session is unique - you do not have to have attended a previous session to join an upcoming session. You also do not have to attend all the sessions.



  • Please register for each session individually in order to allow us to manage the space constraints.
