~ So That Your Values Live On ~

The art of writing your Ethical Will.

 

A 3-session workshop with Rabbi Eva.

 

 


 

 

The unexamined life is not worth living. ~ Socrates

 

In remembrance lies the secret of redemption. ~ Baal Shem Tov
 

 

* What is an ethical will and why do you need one?

 

* What values do you believe in, live by and hope others will continue to value after you are gone?

 

* How do you describe the life you are living?

 

An ethical will is a personal legacy of spirit, meaning, and value in which one reflects on his or her life, harvests its worth and meaning, and shares wisdom, lessons learned, and special messages with important individuals or with the community. Ethical Wills are also called legacy letters, spiritual-ethical wills, spiritual autobiographies, family philosophy statements, credos or even love letters.

 

During this 3-part workshop, we will prepare to write our own ‘ethical will’ by:

 

~ reviewing what an ethical will is, and why it is important to write one.

 

~ discussing basic Jewish values.

 

~ looking at what events in your life have shaped your values.

 

~ focusing on life lessons, hopes, dreams, blessings and forgiveness.

 

~ assessing the value, spirit and meaning of your life through life review and          ‘accounting of the Soul’ (cheshbon ha’nefesh).
 

 

Note: The Ethical Will workshop is a natural follow-up to Wise Aging, however Wise Aging is not a required prerequisite for Ethical Will.
