Jewish Ethical Wills: A Values Vault for Future Generations

Do you know what's going to happen to your valuables after you die? But what about your values? Have you ever written or recorded what's important to you?

Ethical wills, sometimes called spiritual or legacy letters, are resources Jews have used for centuries to articulate and pass on deeply held values and beliefs. Historically, they were letters written by parents to children; now they often address a wider circle of friends and family and can come in audio, video, or other creative formats. This interactive workshop will get you started on creating your own ethical will. Funded by a generous grant from the Charles H. Revson Foundation.
