Join us for a facilitated conversation about death and end-of-life issues. Using a conversation guide made for and by LGBTQ Jews, we will talk about death in an accessible and life-affirming space.
Registration is closed for this program.
December 7, 7PM | End-of-Life Wishes and Tahara as LGBTQ Jews
Jewish ritual surrounding death can be more complex for LGBTQ people. Tahara, the preparation of the body, can be problematic for trans and non-binary Jews if our wishes are not communicated before death. Questions of biological and chosen family as executors is also a question LGBTQ people may need to consider. Join other LGBTQ Jews and representatives from the Chicagoland Progressive Chevra Kadisha (Jewish burial society) to learn about Tahara and start thinking about your wishes! No prior knowledge necessary. Required registration at: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJMocemrpjwpGtH9bI4HYw-Rh4lBTAKNmFrs
Contact Essie Shachar-Hill (email@example.com) with any questions or concerns.
