“Rosh Hashanah: New Year’s Resolutions for a Better Life and Death” – Online – Thursday, September 14, 2023 (2 pm – 3:30 pm central time)



Description: This program will provide information on the annual tradition of Rosh Hashanah and Days of Awe when Jewish people reflect on the year that’s passed and look to the year ahead. We will examine the annual tradition of making changes for a better life, and death, for anyone of any faith, or no faith at all.

Upon completion of this program, the participant will be able to:

∙ Identify the historical and religious significance of Rosh Hashanah.

∙ Identify the rituals, traditions, and practices of Rosh Hashanah among various cultures and beliefs.

∙ Recognize the ways those beliefs can benefit people of different backgrounds, both before and after a serious diagnosis.

∙ Recognize the role of death doulas, care teams, loved ones, and professionals when supporting both Jewish clients and non-Jewish clients who would benefit from these traditions.

∙ Identify the ways they can reflect on their lives and use that awareness to improve their future.
