What is a legacy letter?
A legacy letter (also called an "ethical will") is a written document that allows people to reflect on their important life experiences, and transmit their values, life lessons and blessings to future generations. Ethical wills are deeply rooted in Jewish tradition.
What should I expect?
Through this hands-on workshop, participants will be guided in beginning to craft their personal legacy letter. By the end of the session, you should have a great start to your legacy letter—your personal statement for you to share with loved ones and preserve for future generations.
