Preparing for the End of Life: Navigating the Spiritual, Practical, and Emotional Landscape for Life’s Final Journey
Minyan Masorti is hosting a Memorial Shabbat on Shabbat morning, May 4, to remember minyan members who have passed away since the minyan’s origin in 1981.  Rabbi Tsurah August, as guest speaker, will give a dvar torah and speak after the service on “Preparing for the End of Life: Navigating the Spiritual, Practical, and Emotional Landscape for Life’s Final Journey.”

Rabbi Tsurah is staff chaplain for the Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Greater Philadelphia, and creator of “A Loving Good-bye”: individual counseling for families and their loved ones to find peace and meaning at end of life, funeral and memorial planning and bereavement counseling.

The program will include a choral performance of Herb Levine’s poetry set to music by the late David Barcan and completed with the help of Mitch Hirsch.  Contributions to GJC for “MM Memorial Shabbat” are welcome. A luncheon will follow the program; to attend, please RSVP to Wendy Weingarten.
