SACRED JEWISH CONVERSATION

"Can We Talk?" Empowering us and others to Talk Jewishly about Advanced Planning- Apply for Mishkan Miami's Sacred Jewish Conversation Facilitator Training Program

Especially during an uncertain time such as this, many of us at all ages and stages of life have though about not only our values, legacy and end-of-life wishes for ourselves, but we want to engage in this conversation with others- friends, family, and our medical professionals. From experience, we know that engaging others in these conversations can be daunting, but you are not alone.

• Do you think about having this conversation with family members? • Are you interested in learning how to facilitate this conversation with your friends, congregation or book club? • Are you a medical professional, a long-term care facility worker or a legal professional with clients who could benefit from these conversations? • Are you a social worker or case manager working with older adults? • Are you clergy who wants more information and resources for your congregation?

Mishkan Miami will be our second training to become a Sacred Jewish Conversation facilitator. In a few online sessions, you will receive materials and build confidence in engaging others in this important conversation about end-of-life wishes.

Because of public health concerns, we have gone virtual. You will be able to join this group from the comfort of your home!

Remembrance and Justice: A Special Conversation with the President of Argentina, H.E. Alberto Fernández, on the 26th Anniversary of the AMIA attack

It has been twenty-six years since AMIA – the institutional heart of Argentine Jewry – was targeted in a devastating terrorist attack perpetrated by Iran's proxy, Hezbollah.

Since the immediate aftermath of the attack and until the present day, AJC has been calling for justice and accountability for the single deadliest antisemitic incident since the Second World War. Over the past several years, after a turbulent investigative journey, Argentina has laudably identified Iran as responsible for the attack, designated all of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization, and adopted the IHRA Working Definition of Antisemitism, with AJC’s active encouragement and support.

Today, despite the unprecedented difficulties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and domestic challenges in Argentina, President Alberto Fernández is strengthening ties with the United States, with Israel, and with the Jewish community in Argentina and around the world.
