Diaspora Dinners and Reboot Present: Death Over Dinner
January 18 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM$50
This special event is a collaboration between Reboot and Diaspora Dinners. The dinner deviates from the typical Shabbat dinner format and will be structured as an extended guided conversation. Reboot’s national communications manager, Tanya Schevitz, described Death Over Dinner to Tablet Magazine:
[Death Over Dinner] Jewish Edition convenes groups of Jewish people around dinner tables to have conversations about our relationship to end-of-life issues and explore mortality framed by Jewish text and philosophies, explained Tanya Schevitz, Reboots spokesperson. The Jewish tradition creates powerful frameworks around life events like birth, coming-of-age, marriage, and death, but around the latter, most of our tradition focuses on post-death issues. With modern medicine having the ability to dictate an end-of-life path, it is more crucial than ever to have the space for a conversation with friends and loved ones around desired end-of-life experiences.
The meal is hosted by Rachel Ellison (Bat Sarah Press) with food by Chris Reed (The Rice Table) and Dylan Maysick (formerly of Front Room Donuts). Join us for dinner on Friday, January 18th. BYOB.
