Planning for Peace of Mind: Preparing for Death Long Before You Need To
Hosted By: Stroum Center for Jewish Studies - University of Washington
Writing an ethical will, a document that includes stories and reflections about your past, is an ancient tradition. It can include joy and regrets, and ultimately becomes both a way to remember a loved one who is gone and a primer on how to live a better, happier life. Joined by AJU’s Chief Innovation Officer, Rabbi Sherre Hirsch, Rabbi Steve Leder will reflect on the themes and lessons shared in his new book, For You When I Am Gone, and discuss the importance of preparing for death long before you need to by writing your own ethical will.
About Planning for Peace of Mind:
Nearly 70% of all funeral arrangements are made by widowed spouses or children at the height of emotional stress and grief after their loss. In this 3-part series we are joined by Rabbis Steve Leder, Elliot Dorff, and Ed Feinstein for spiritual and practical conversations moderated by Rabbi Sherre Hirsch. We invite you to join in any one, or even in all of these talks, as we use Jewish wisdom, practice and comfort to walk you through this inevitable aspect of life.
