Jewish Ethical Wills: How Will You Be Remembered?

Hosted By: The Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning

Everyone has a story, and how we preserve our stories can ensure that they inspire future generations. This writing workshop offers an introduction to writing your own ethical will, or legacy letter, which is a little-known but important, centuries-old Jewish tradition of letter writing. An ethical will is not a legal document but a letter transmitting your everyday wisdom to friends and family. The power of these letters is the personal perspective that you bring to them. Letters may be secular or religious in their content, short or long, serious or silly; those choices are all up to the letter writer. Melton Online teacher Dr. Lesley Simpson will share examples of ethical wills and help you begin to write your own letter in a collaborative learning and writing space. The four-week course is designed for active participation so come ready to write!
