What is my Legacy? Ethical Wills and Planned Giving

Thurs 4/4 and Wed 4/10, 7:00-8:15 pm 

Please join Rabbi Toba, Ezra Hausman and Dan Rome for a conversation about the legacy we hope to leave behind. The first session will focus on what Jewish tradition calls an "ethical will," a statement of values and commitments that we leave for family and others who remain after us. At the second session, we will explore the alignment of our material legacy with our values and consider – with whatever economic resources we have – how we can create an enduring expression of those values. 

God Is Here: Reimagining the Divine

Sponsored by the Institute for Jewish Spirituality
Thursdays, April 18, May 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, June 6, 1:00-2:15 pm

The Institute for Jewish Spirituality is hosting Rabbi Toba for a deep exploration of non-anthropomorphic metaphors for the Divine in Jewish tradition, such as Water, Voice, Fire, Rock, Cloud, and Becoming. Based on her book God Is Here: Reimagining the Divine, Rabbi Toba will unpack a single metaphor in each live practice session (which will be recorded and available to those who cannot attend), immersing participants in mindfulness practices designed to help you access these pathways to the sacred in your own life. For God-believers, non-believers, and all those in between!

Participants will receive a copy of God Is Here as part of their registration. Tuition: Sliding scale, $149/299/399, if finances are an obstacle, please contact Rabbi Toba.
