Je Vais, Tu Vas, Shiva: A Conversation About Death
Thu November 16 @ 19:00 - 21:00
In a moment when so many of us are experiencing grief, we are also feeling a closer personal connection to death and mourning. This is a topic that we often don’t get to speak openly about and it feels like a pertinent time to start.
On November 16, join us in partnership with the Mile End Chavurah for a roundtable conversation about death. We’ll have a real talk about this big subject alongside some folks who are steeped in worlds where death is anything but taboo. We will welcome Dan Misha Goldman, a musician and music therapist in palliative care; Rian Lussier, a death care worker and memorial organizer for Keeper and the organizer of a cemetery scavenger hunt for talkdeath.com here in Montreal; artist Sonia Bazar, who is currently preparing a photography and sculpture exhibit about the Back River Cemetery; and Rabbi Dini Lewittes, a lecturer at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York, as well as an innovator of green burial here in Québec. Curated and moderated by Tamara Kramer. Drinks and free snacks will be served. All questions and states of mind/soul are welcome!
