Death Cafe: An Open Conversation

Sunday, October 29, gather at 3:30

Conversation 4:00-6:00pm

Participant's home in North Berkeley

You are invited to tea, cake, and conversation at our Death Cafe. It is part of the international Death Cafe movement, which offers respectful and nonjudgmental places to talk about death.  These conversations can also help us to make the most of our finite lives.


We live in a culture that tries to deny old age and death. Death Cafes open the discussion and provide a safe space for us to share thoughts, feelings, concerns, fears, beliefs, and stories about death as a natural part of life.


The conversation will be agenda-free and will reflect participants’ interests. There is often lots of laughter as well as a few tears.

Facilitated by Aliyah Stein, MFT, a Berkeley therapist for individuals, couples, and families for over 30 years and a Jewish Gateways participant, and by Rabbi Bridget Wynne of Jewish Gateways.

HOW: The gathering is free, with a small donation requested for refreshments. All are welcome. Feel free to invite friends who may be interested. Please register here soon, as space is limited.

We will gather at 3:30pm to get tea and cake and get settled, and will begin our conversation at 4:00pm. You are welcome to stay afterward for the sunset, which will be at 6:13pm.


QUESTIONS: Contact Rabbi Bridget by email or at 510-410-0622.
