Death Over Dessert with Rabbi Baum

Join Rabbi Baum as we continue this educational series!

Death over Dessert

Death Over Dessert is a series of conversations with Rabbi David Baum and fellow community members over dessert. Death Over Dessert is part of a national project to discuss one of the most difficult conversations to have: Death.


Join us on Wednesday, February 26, 2020 at 7:00 PM & Tuesday, March 3, 2020 at 7:00 PM for a conversation on how we end our lives.


Why the dinner table? We have found that the dinner table is one of the most forgiving places for difficult conversations. The ritual of breaking bread slows us down. It creates warmth and connection, and puts us in touch with our humanity.

During this series, we will speak frankly and soulfully about death. We will have this vital conversation before it is too late. The course will be geared around the questions and concerns that the class has about death and dying.


Dates: February 26 & March 3

Time: 7:00-8:30 PM (each class is 1.5 hrs)

Cost: $25 per session, or $40 for both sessions.


(Cost includes Dessert)
