As we reach the end of the book of Genesis and the blessings of Jacob on his deathbed, let’s spend some time considering the writing of ethical wills in Jewish tradition. What messages do we pass down to our children and grandchildren? What teachings do we transmit and share for posterity? And how does one begin to write an ethical will? David Balto has taught workshops on writing an ethical will. A former anti-trust attorney, David serves as a chaplain in hospital and prison settings. Services at 9:30 am, Rabbi’s Table at 10:45, kiddush at noon.
