"Dying Doesn’t Feel Like What I Am Doing"

Sunday, January 24, 2021 11 Sh'vat 5781

3:30 PM - 5:00 PMFilm on Vimeo; Discussion on Zoom

Film Screening and Discussion Led by Rabbi Sarah Weissman, Presented by Beth Am's Gesharim & Chevra Kadisha

Is it possible to consider terminal illness an opportunity for continued growth of the spirit? In this gentle and intimate film, directed by Paula Weiman-Kelman, Rabbi Rachel Cowan (z”l)  includes us in her own journey following a terminal diagnosis — the struggles as well as the joys. The first female Jew by choice to be ordained, Rabbi Cowan helped found the Institute for Jewish Spirituality, the Wise Aging course and other influential efforts to promote and enhance Jewish life. Living each day fully, she turned dying into an opportunity to experience gratitude.

This program is free of charge, sponsored by Beth Am's Gesharim and Chevra Kadisha. Please register below for free access to watch the film on Vimeo, Thursday, January 21 through Monday, January 25, and to receive details on how to join the live Zoom discussion with Rabbi Sarah Weissman on Sunday, January 25 at 3:30 PM.

Gesharim is a congregant-led initiative to support individuals and families facing the end of life. Chevra Kadisha is Beth Am’s burial society that takes on the holy mitzvah of ritually preparing the deceased for burial. Learn more about both organizations.
