Getting Your House in Order: Wills, Advance Directives and Burial

Wed, 09/27/2017 - 2:04pm -- Cschrager

The New Year brings possibilities for new beginnings. It's time to talk about important decisions for the inevitable. 

Monday, October 23 at 7 pm
Temple Shaaray Tefila, 250 E 79th Street

  • Do you have a Will and a Healthcare Proxy?
  • Do you own a cemetery plot? What happens if you don't?
  • If you have children, who will raise them should you and/or your spouse die prematurely? What will happen to your estate?
  • If you live alone, are your wishes legally documented and have you designated someone to act on your behalf?
  • Do you know what information a funeral home will need? What does a traditional Jewish burial mean?


  • Rabbi Joel M. Mosbacher - Senior Rabbi, Temple Shaaray Tefila
  • Joanne Sternlieb - TST Congregant; Senior Vice President and Senior Estate Planner, Neuberger Berman Trust Company N.A.
  • Stephanie Garry - TST Congregant; Chief Administrative Officer, Plaza Community Chapel
