There is a Jewish understanding that runs deeper than religious belief, a guide for both the dying and the living. The annual ceremonial cycle includes a collective life review in recognition of personal mortality, remembrance of ancestors and comfort for mourners.  Although there are many different ways to interpret and express our Jewish identity, it supports us during times of transition.

Please join us for a webinar with Holly Blue Hawkins a Natural Deathcare advocate, educator, community organizer, cemeterian, author and poet who provides education and training to both Jewish and non-Jewish audiences. Holly Blue has lived and worked in Hawaiʻi and we are honored to have her join us.
