Welcome to one of the most extraordinary gifts that Jewish Wisdom has offered
Conversations for Life and Legacy™
Conversations for Life and Legacy™ is so much more than an Ethical Will, But what is it actually?
Conversations for Life and Legacy™ permit us to:
- Teach and nurture our children
- Reflect and self-assess
- Deepen Relationships
- Connect to future generations
As parents, we are teachers. The wisdom of our life experiences and our values are gifts that we share with our children.
Judaism has embraced this concept from early in the book of Genesis and throughout our history. From the Patriarchs to the individual Jew, we have gleaned wisdom and shared it with those who would come after. Conversations for Life and Legacy™ embraces our on-going role as teacher and nurturer.
These Conversations for Life and Legacy™ are also our opportunity to reflect during our own life journey. Conversations for Life and Legacy become a Cheshbon HaNefesh, an opportunity to review our lives, to confirm we are on our proper path, and if not, consider how to get back onto it.
This new approach also makes Conversations for Life and Legacy™ an on-going life project to be shared with those we love as well, not only a look back after all is complete. Recording and sharing experiences when we have them can to create deeper bonds in existing relationships. Our children get to know us in profound ways by hearing the reflections of our experiences when we faced them as they now encounter that situation in their own lives. An example is a mother’s sharing her experience of childbirth with her daughter on the eve of her new child.
Conversations for Life and Legacy™ is a gift that serves to bind our generations. We use the synagogues as platforms to teach and engage anyone interested in exploring this extraordinary practice. This teaching also works to strengthen the congregations it serves by creating an affinity group based in shared values. We also work privately with individuals looking to bring Conversations for Life and Legacy™ to his or her families.
