Death & Dying: Jewish Custom and Outlook

  • Ner Shalom 85 La Plaza Cotati, CA, 94931 United States (map)

Taught by Reb Judith Goleman,

Reb Irwin Keller

and Nancy Dotti, Sonoma County Chevra Kadisha

Sometimes people find themselves at a loss in the face of loss: not having a clear idea how to be with someone who is dying, how to mourn and how to remember. Together we will explore the wisdom that our Jewish tradition has to share. We will also discuss specific Chevra Kadisha practices of tahara (purification of the body) and shmira (sitting vigil).

Requested donation: $10 for members, $20 for non-members. No one kept out for lack of funds.
