The Hesed End of Life Conversation series is an intergenerational opportunity to talk about an important part of life that rarely gets discussed.  With teachings from our Jewish texts, we are exploring the belief that talking about death prepares us to approach life’s most challenging moments and helps us articulate who we are and what we ultimately care about.  

This conversation follows the well-received 1st Hesed End of Life Conversation, “Death over Brunch.”

Please join Rabbi Lauren Holtzblatt for text study on the Halacha at the end of life.  This will be followed by personal stories from Adas members who have been affected by the work of the Bereavement Committee and Bereavement Committee members who have been enriched by their work as Shomrim, Tahara team members, and Chaverim.

Session #2 will serve as a bridge to Session #3 on May 19:  “Curating Your Own Death.”  The format for this session will be similar to that of the first session.  Rabbi Holtzblatt will lead a presentation and then a meditation.  There will be time for facilitated discussion at table groups.

May 19: This final session will address your questions about advanced directives, funeral protocols, and other practical death and dying issues. Rabbi Holtzblatt along with experienced practitioners will be our resources and guides.

You can sign up for all 3 Conversations About End Of Life sessions or for each individual one. No charge. For more information, contact Jamie Butler at Please register below for our second session.
