An ethical will is not a legal document and does not distribute material goods. It is a means by which you can share your values, blessings, hopes and dreams for the future of your loved ones.
Ethical wills are not new. References to this tradition are found in Torah (Genesis 18:19) and in other cultures. Ethical wills are written by people of all ages who want to know that their most important thoughts and feelings will be known to their loved ones and succeeding generations. They are usually shared with family while the writer is still alive.
This class is an opportunity to organize your thoughts on topics that mean most to you, such as honesty, kindness, forgiveness, and the life lessons you have learned.
Our teacher is Rabbi Steve Chester, a parent and grandparent himself.
