Ethical wills are statements we create to share our legacy of personal wisdom, history, deep wishes, and heartfelt aspirations. Writing ethical wills is a Jewish practice dating back centuries that is meaningful today: both for those interested in making wills and those who receive them. The Jewish Ethical Wills Project promotes and facilitates the creation of ethical wills in connection with life cycle events and advance care planning, and serves as a resource for individuals and communities interested in exploring this significant practice. If you would like to know more, please contact Project Director Elizabeth Leiman Kraiem: Elkraiem@jccmanhattan.org.
The Jewish Ethical Wills Project is an initiative of JCCManhattan and What Matters: Caring Conversations About End of Life, and is funded by the Charles H. Revson Foundation .
