Jennie Fahn, author and star of the one-woman show “Under the Jello Mold,” joins Rabbis Frimmer and Klein Miles for a conversation about her upcoming performance at Isaiah and the stories we tell about the final act of life. Join the rabbis as they delve into the backstory (can you really write a comedy about death?!), giving space for grief, making meaning of loss, and the power of eulogies, in any form.
Jennie performed her show “Under the Jello Mold” at Temple Isaiah on Sunday, January
“Under the Jello Mold” — Jennie Fahn revisits her very colorful character of a mother during what turned out to be the final act of her mother’s life.
