Six separate sessions focus on advance directives and final wishes; Jewish laws, customs, and traditions concerning the body and burial; the art of comforting the sick and the bereaved; mourning and grieving; and Jewish perspectives on the afterlife.
Participants can register for any class at any location, and can pick and choose any number of sessions. Locations are JCC East Bay, Osher Marin JCC, JCCSF from February to June. Sessions are $10 each.
