Sacred Transition: Jewish Approaches to Death and Dying

What Can I, a Jew, Expect at the End of My Life? What is the Chevra Kadisha?

Come and learn from some of our local Rabbis and esteemed Jewish educators as they teach time-honored Jewish customs and perspectives regarding death and dying.

Hear from local funeral directors about what Boulder now offers, and about our Boulder community’s Sacred Burial Society, the Chevra Kadisha, which was founded in 1995 and has tended hundreds of families, providing dignified care for their loved ones.

The Chevra Kadisha is made up of volunteers who participate in important traditions which are often not known until a loved one dies.

Panelists include Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, Rabbi Marc Soloway, Rabbi Nadya Gross, Rabbi Deborah Bronstein and Morah Yehudis Fishman.

RSVPs are helpful to plan for space and refreshments, but not required. Please send email to eviebc18@gmail.com if you plan to attend.

When: Sunday, March 5, 2017 at 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.

Where:  BoulderJCC
