Life Cycles. Whether we are coming together or moving apart in the cycle of life, we can mark the moment with creative and inspiring ritual.
Maimonides, the great Jewish scholar and philosopher, taught that we have a sacred obligation to visit the sick, bury the dead, and celebrate with the bride and groom. (Maimonides, Hilchot Avel 14:1) Caring for the lifecycle needs of our friends, family and neighbors is an integral part of our lives as Jews.
