Yom Kippur as Dress Rehearsal for Death: Lessons From the Pandemic
Hosted By: Shomer Collective
Jewish tradition considers Yom Kippur to be a “dress rehearsal” for our death: we refrain from eating and drinking, washing and pleasure, we wear white, evoking the image of shrouds. So too, this pandemic has forced us to grapple with how close we are to death on any given day.
Join us for a session with Rabbi Kara Tav, hailed by the New York Times as one of “the men and women who run toward the dying” for her frontline hospital chaplaincy work, as we consider the value of confronting our mortality to help us live lives of greater meaning and connection.
Sign up is permitted after the first class has passed.
This is session 3 of the 3-part series, Awakening to the New Jewish Year: Living Well in the Face of Mortality.
