A Death Cafe is a facilitated discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session. Our objective is 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.' Bring a beverage and/or a snack to the virtual cafe and talk about death in a safe and relaxed atmosphere. This program will be facilitated by congregant Susan Barnes, a Gamliel Institute instructor and the head of our Chevra Kadisha program. Questions contact Susan at
