How Would You Like to Be Remembered: Ethical Wills

Hosted By: The Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning

Jewish civilizations include a tradition of letter writing called an ethical will. An ethical will is not a legal document, but a letter of legacy, sharing hopes, wishes, and dreams. An ethical will can be cherished or ignored. For centuries, mothers and fathers, grandmothers and grandfathers have crafted ethical wills for the next generation, like a message in a bottle.

Lesley Simpson will introduce a repository of these letters and illuminate how powerful these modes of Jewish memory can be for both the writer and the recipients.
