Death over Dinner-Jewish Edition is supported by the Breakthrough Fund: An Innovation of the Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago

The way we die is the most important conversation Americans aren’t having. Death over Dinner-Jewish Edition (DOD-JE) facilitates live programming to address end-of-life matters over a meal. The project places these important questions in the center of a dinner and asks participants to consider, debate and discuss what their intentions are for living and dying. Whether you are a Jewish insider, more on the margins, or Jewish-adjacent, we welcome you to join us in tapping into some age-old Jewish wisdom around grieving and ritual, living and dying. We will be using materials and a facilitation guide for a dinner that will be engaging, empowering, and even uplifting.
