The Conversation Project
Have you had "the conversation" yet?
Tuesday, June 4 at 8:00-9:30 pm, in Reisman Hall
It is time to introduce a new way of thinking - time to transform our culture -
to communicate, in advance, with our loved ones about what kind of care
we want at the end of life - and what we don't
"We all know Kohelet's famous quote, ‘There is a time for everything... a time to be born, and a time to die.' But we often forget that he also continued, ‘There is a time to be silent and a time to speak.' The resonance of these two teachings
Death is not something to shrink away from any more than we would the birth of a new baby. Death is an intrinsic part of life.
We prepare for birth, speak of it, plan for it. So too, let us prepare for death by speaking, planning, and giving our loved ones the gift of knowing they will be honoring us with their deeds."
Rabbi Michelle Robinson
One conversation can make all the difference. This evening's dynamic, interactive discussion explains the importance and power of conversation and provides helpful ways to get the conversation started.
Come find out how to begin
Rabbi Michelle Robinson will open the program.
Harvey Freishtat, Esq., founding Board member of the Project and Temple Emanuel member, is our conversation leader for this program.
Joining him will be Harriet Warshaw, Executive Director of The Conversation Project.
The place to begin this conversation is at the kitchen table, not the intensive care unit.
FREE and open to all ages. But we DO need a headcount.
RSVP to the synagogue office: email@example.com or call 617-558-8100
The Conversation Project was recently featured in The Boston Globe, The Wall Street Journal,
the Harvard Business Review, NPR, and ABC World News.
