JDOV Talk, Filmed at Limmud Conference 2013
“It is not the fear of death, rather it is the fear of life…the fear of not taking every opportunity to celebrate life and make it meaningful”
Abraham Joshua Heschel
Yom Kippur is sometimes described as ‘a rehearsal for the day of our death’. We think about our death, because we think about how we want our life to be.
What makes us so important?
What is our mission?
What must we accomplish?
This moving JDOV talk by Sally Berkovic explores these questions through the lens of Tahara – the ritual of preparing a body before a burial.
