What Matters Most to You at the End of Life

Wednesday, September 20, 2023 5 Tishrei 5784

8:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Topic: How to Have “The Talk” with your Loved Ones / What Matters Most to You at the End Of Life?
with Arielle Friedtanzer

No one wants to think about death. But we do want to think about living life as the unique individuals we are; we want to think about our loved ones and ensuring that they are both cared for and unburdened; we want to feel accomplished and proud and satisfied with our lives at the moment that they end.

This session will use games, discussion, and reflection to understand what makes life meaningful for us at all costs and what we would value at the very end. We will learn how to share these choices with others, including those who may ultimately be responsible for acting on our behalf, so that they can make the decisions that allow us to live fully and die well.

Arielle Friedtanzer, M.A., has spent the last five years trying to convince people of all ages that talking about death will not make it happen any sooner. Trained as an interfaith chaplain with a background in Judaic Studies, Bioethics, and Social Work, has offered countless opportunities to individuals of all ages and background to explore their experiences with advanced-care planning, loss, death, and grief. Arielle hosted a weekly Facebook Live series, Millennials and Mortality Mondays, during the pandemic, and began facilitating virtual memorials and celebrations of life. Arielle is determined to reduce the stigma around aging and the fear of death by helping people have these thoughtful conversations early and often, and she feels tremendous privilege in being present with individuals and families during these difficult, but intimate moments.
