10:00 AM - 12:00 PMAdas Israel Congregation

End of Life Conversation

Third Session: Sunday, May 19 @ 10am

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. Dates are:

Sunday, February 3, 10 AM to noon 
Sunday, March 24, 10:00 AM to noon

Sunday, May 19, 10:00 AM to noon (Register Below)

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.

There is no cost for these events. However, we ask that you please register for these sessions at the link below.
