Planning for Peace of Mind: Feel Empowered with Advance Directives 
Wednesday at 12:00pm PT

From hospice care to spiritual preparation for death, there is so much to think about when it comes to preparing for the end as it draws near. Learn how to ensure that all your end-of-life wishes are met, both legally and spiritually. Cedars-Sinai’s Rabbi Dr. Jason Weiner and Rabbi Sherre Hirsch will take you through the necessary steps to make certain that your end-of-life care is exactly how you want it.

About Planning for Peace of Mind:

Nearly 70% of all funeral arrangements are made by widowed spouses or children at the height of emotional stress and grief after their loss. In this 3-part series, we are joined by Rabbi Jonathan Aaron, Michael Hebb, and Rabbi Jason Weiner for spiritual and practical conversations moderated by Rabbi Sherre Hirsch. We invite you to join in any or even in all of these talks, as we use Jewish wisdom, practice, and comfort to walk you through this inevitable aspect of life.

This event is generously sponsored by Hillside Memorial Park and Mortuary.
