Whether you are 20 or 95, everyone faces mortality. Though everyone's story will differ, we all lose someone we love, and we all grieve differently. Here's an opportunity to learn how death awareness translates into a life of love and compassion – both for those we care for, and ourselves.

Together, we will learn how both Judaism and our society approach death. We will cover the wide subjects of planning, dying, death, and what comes next. What are the rituals? How do we take those first steps forward?
How can our community help us? Where do we start?

In this 4-session series, we will have an open discussion about all things end-of-life. Everyone is welcome to share, to ask questions, and listen.

Though each session can stand alone, attend them all for the most benefit. Free and open to all.
