“Never Long Enough” with Rabbi Joseph Krakoff
Sunday, August 5, 7:45 p.m.
Beth Israel is excited to welcome Rabbi Joseph Krakoff, Senior Director of the Jewish Hospice and Chaplaincy Network to discuss his exceptional book “Never Long Enough.” This book is designed to be read along with someone nearing the end of life — or, it can be read by mourners after a death. Rabbi Krakoff and artist Dr. Michelle Sider crafted an interactive keepsake book for families and friends, complete with pages to add personal reflections thereby transforming the book into an individualized tribute to a loved one. Whenever this book is opened, it becomes an active invitation for conversation, lifting up memories and preserving the legacy of someone’s life.
Rabbi Joseph H. Krakoff regularly offers seminars on a variety of spiritual topics with a particular focus on moral and ethical behavior, palliative and hospice care and end of life decision-making. This event is free of charge. Please RSVP to Sarah Klein at email@example.com. His book will be available for purchase.
