Join us at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan for a conversation about transforming the way people approach the end of life and what Judaism can teach us about dying well with Jessica Nutik Zitter, M.D., and JTS’s Chancellor Arnold Eisen. Dr. Zitter is the author of Extreme Measures: Finding a Better Path to the End of Life, and her work is featured in the Oscar-nominated short documentary Extremis. She is uniquely trained to practice both critical and palliative care medicine, and is a regular contributor to the New York Times and the Huffington Post. Book sale sponsored by Book Culture and signing to follow the conversation.
This event is sponsored by What Matters: Caring Conversations About End of Life. What Matters aims to engage New Yorkers in compassionate, value-driven conversations about advance care planning so that they may live with the comfort of knowing their choices will be honored by loved ones and healthcare professionals. What Matters is a collaboration between JCC Manhattan, the New Jewish Home, and the Center for Pastoral Education at JTS. This work is made possible through generous grants from Plaza Jewish Community Chapel and UJA Federation of New York.
