Chevra Kaddisha Dinner – April 27

A “Living in Sacred Community Dinner” will be held Friday, April 27, 6-9 pm, at Congregation Har Shalom (725 W. Drake Rd, Ft. Collins) to honor all the Chevrah Kaddisha volunteers who make this community special.  Chevra Kaddisha is a society providing burial preparation and protection according to Jewish tradition. This year’s dinner will focus on the way we can make community sacred.

The dinner will be catered by FOCO Café, a wonderful “pay what you can” restaurant in Old Town which is also creating sacred community. They will also present to us their community-building model and provide information about their work.

Our guest speaker this year will be Rick Light, the author of Jewish Rites of Death – Stories of Beauty and Transformation. Many are familiar with the book, which is a collection of moving stories from around the country.  Rick will talk about collecting the stories and read excerpts from the book.

Dinner reservations are $18 per person (this is not a pot luck event). If you are a Chevrah volunteer, your dinner is paid for, but you still need to register. There are donated tickets, so no one should be left out if cost is an issue. You can go online and register as a Chevrah member, and we will use a donated ticket for your dinner.

It looks like we will have a great turn out!
