One moment please...

You have questions, we have answers! 

Kavod v'Nichum is pleased to present a series of workshops for the Boulder Jewish community to begin a conversation about end-of-life planning.

Guided by Jewish values, we will explore having important conversations with loved ones, creating plans for end-of-life, and learning about and writing our own ethical wills. 

Join us on Zoom for one session or all three: 

Part 1: The Conversation
Tuesday April 26th, 7:00-8:30p REG CLOSED

It can be difficult to have conversations about the end-of-life with the people we are closest to in our lives. Yet, there is great benefit in sitting down to talk so that we can plan, prepare, and honor those we love.

In this workshop we will: 

  • Introduce why having conversations ahead of time is important
  • Review different important topics for conversations with loved ones 
  • Share and discuss approaches and tools to help guide these important conversations


Part 2: The Plan
Tuesday May 3rd, 7:00-8:30p REG CLOSED

Many people don’t encounter the roadmap of decisions that need to be made about end-of-life until they are in the moment. This workshop will introduce how and what to plan for, long before there’s a need.  

In this workshop we will: 

  • Learn about Jewish end-of-life rituals
  • Discuss the steps to planning a Jewish funeral, burial, and shiva (7-day mourning period) 


Part 3: An Action, Jewish Ethical Will Writing
Tuesday May 10th, 7:00-8:30p 

When we write our wills we often focus on the financial aspects of what we want to leave to our loved ones. Gifting our values is another important element we can incorporate as well.

In this workshop we will: 

  • Learn what a Jewish ethical will is
  • Explore how to gift our values and passing on life lessons learned
  • Begin to write our own ethical wills
  • Learn about writing a ‘Letter to our children’ 

This program is supported, in part, by a generous contribution by the Staenberg Family Foundation.
