Hevra Kadisha Dinner

Sunday, February 22, 2015 3 Adar 5775

5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
 Please join us for PSJC's annual Hevra Kadisha dinner, featuring Rabbi Yael Shmilovitz, Palliative Care Chaplain and Clinical Pastoral Educator at Bellevue Hospital.

 Suffering at the End of Life-Untold Stories

Most people fear death. But what are people really afraid of when they say they are afraid to die? Please join us for a discussion about finitude, healing, death, and life, and share insights Yael has gleaned as a chaplain and teacher of chaplains in a large urban hospital. Together, we will contemplate what it might mean to respect dying and death, and consider ways to alleviate the suffering of loved ones--and, perhaps, of our own selves--at the end of life.
