MEET THE TEAM
NechamaComfort supports families who have suffered from early miscarriage through infants up to age one.
We help wherever and whenever we are needed – the immediate family, extended family, and friends. We work with medical staff, hospital staff, clergy, and funeral homes to get families what they need, and we educate professionals and communities on how to be supportive. Whether the loss was recent or a long time ago, we are here.
Founder & Director
The concept of NechamaComfort began after the tragic loss of Reva's first born baby, Pesach. Reva's mission is that no one should ever feel alone when experiencing pregnancy and infant loss.
Reva has her BS in Human and Child Development, chaplaincy certification from Hackensack Medical Center and Pregnancy Infant Loss facilitator certification from the RTS Program.
Sharon has her PsyD degree in school/child clinical psychology from Yeshiva University. She is a retired school psychologist. Sharon's commitment to supporting women and families in the broad Jewish community is what drew her to the work of NechamaComfort.
Esther worked for many years as a antepartum/postpartum registered nurse at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. She is a trained pregnancy & infant loss case manager. After experiencing a number of losses herself, she was drawn to NechamaComfort.
Ellen received her Master of Science degree from New York University and trained with Resolve Through Sharing. In addition to supporting families, Ellen develops educational programs to guide professionals & communities in how to help. Ellen joined NechamaComfort after the stillbirth of her daughter Ahava.
