What’s it all about?
The Torah perspective on the value of life and its concerns about illness and death are not easy to talk about.
We’re here to change that.
On Shabbos Parshas Vayechi, January 11, 2020, rabbis and congregations across the country will use the teachable moment that the parsha provides in their sermons, lectures and programs. By discussing relevant topics such as the Torah’s perspective on the value of life, preparing for illness, making Halachic and ethical end-of-life decisions and choosing traditional burial choices, we hope to open a dialogue within the community about things that truly matter.
