Bare Your Soul: Physical and Spiritual Preparations for Life and Death
Hosted By: Shomer Collective
Yom Kippur brings us in touch with our own mortality: asking who will live, who will die; wearing white akin to the burial shrouds, refraining from food, drink, and pleasurable activities. Service as part of a Chevra Kadisha (holy burial society) also brings us face to face with death. Join us for a conversation with Sally Berkovic, author of Death Duties: What Being Around the Dead Taught Me About Life, and Sarit Wishnevski, Executive Director of Kavod v’Nichum: Honor and Comfort as we explore some of the unexpected parallels between Yom Kippur and the Chevra Kadisha.
