Green Valley ethical will class planned

Rabbi Stephanie Aaron

In conjunction with Jewish Family & Children’s Services, Beth Shalom Temple Center in Green Valley will present a free ethical will workshop for the Jewish community, led by Rabbi Stephanie Aaron, on Tuesday, May 9, 10 a.m.-noon.

Unlike a medical directive or living will, or a will detailing bequests of property, “writing an ethical will is a process of life review, celebration and legacy,” says Aaron, spiritual leader of Congregation Chaverim and a member of the JFCS board.

“Writing an ethical will is an opportunity to examine our lives, to notice what we hold as precious and meaningful at the core of our beings. What are the values that we have treasured in our living? Who are the people who have shown us the way? How have our mistakes shaped and enlivened us?” says Aaron.

Beth Shalom Temple Center is located at 1751 N. Rio Mayo. Light refreshments will be served. A video introduction to ethical wills and a workbook are available at jfcstucson.org/services/ethical-will.
