This is our third year of LifeQuest, a community of learners and seekers exploring this wilderness of life, with all of its challenges and adventures, together. While our mission is “finding the tools in Judaism to enrich the journey beyond midlife,” LifeQuest is open to all adults to join, from old souls to the young at heart.

Last year’s series on Opening Doors: Talking to Your Adult Children about Things that Matter Most was so successful that we decided to
create a part II, and expand it to talking to anyone. In order to have meaningful conversation, we need techniques to manage reactivity,
create space for respectful dialogue, and advance our communication skills.

Sound strange? Well, Death and Dying Dinner Parties started in Europe and have been trending recently all over America, becoming
something of a movement. It is a unique experience to sit together and talk about such a personal topic. This is our second Death and
Dying dinner at Isaiah, and our first was a great success. Join us for a meal of thanksgiving (literally, a Thanksgiving meal, turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, gravy, salad) over which we will share ideas, concerns, and questions in an environment of support, creativity, and openness about the topic of mortality. This conversation trust and expansion will be facilitated by people trained in this topic. Participation is limited to 60 people. Group will be divided into tables of ten.
$20 for LifeQuest members I $30 for Non-LifeQuest members
