Life Quest:  Ethical Wills with Rabbi Ed Harris

An ethical will is a way to pass along to our loved ones our
values, hopes, dreams and life lessons.  Just as Jacob gathered his
children together before he died, Jewish tradition gives us the opportunity to
express what has been important and meaningful to us in our lives.  In
this class, we will explore Jewish ethical wills:  what they are, where
they come from, what is in them and how to create them, utilizing texts, music,
personal sharing and our own wisdom to discover the personal legacies within
us.  Each person will then have the opportunity to draft his/her own
ethical will.


Tuesday, May 19
