Lecture #3 – End of Life Planning with Weil Funeral home, Rabbi Sigma Coran, and Estate Planner Daniel Hoffheimer
JCGC and Rockdale Temple hosted their 3rd lecture in their inaugural series. The June lecture was on End of Life Planning. Planning for the end of life, while difficult to discuss, can be a relief to you and your loved ones. Panelists, Robert A. Weil, Funeral Director at Weil Funeral Home; Rabbi Sigma Coran, Senior Rabbi at Rockdale Temple; and Daniel J. Hoffheimer, attorney at law and past-president of Rockdale Temple comprised an excellent panel of specialists in their fields. By creating an end of life plan in advance, families will be prepared and know what to do when we approach the end of life and after we are gone. The discussion included information about the legal documents one should have in place, the process of planning with the funeral home and the cemetery, and the role the rabbi may play in helping family members or an individual with preparing for the end of life, to the funeral service itself, and then the mourning process that follows.
