Part One: Biblical and Historical origins of Jewish Death Rituals
Led by Elizabeth Fagin, certified Death & Mourning Doula and (almost) graduate of The Gamliel Institute, a center for study, training, and advocacy concerning Jewish end of life practices. Judaism has a rich and traditional approach to death and dying. Issues of ritual, the actual process of dying and letting go, preparation of the body, burial, mourning, comforting the bereaved - for the individual and for the community - all resonate well with modern concepts of sociology and psychology.
