What Matters presents: Dying Doesn’t Feel Like What I’m Doing
Jan 31 @ 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Documentary Screening and Conversation with Director Paula Weiman-Kelman

Presented by the What Matters: Caring Conversations about End of Life programs at Congregation Rodeph Sholom & Central Synagogue

What Matters is an initiative in the Jewish community of New York that highlights the importance of advance care planning.

Paula Weiman-Kelman’s moving documentary, Dying Doesn’t Feel Like What I’m Doing, celebrates the life of Rachel Cowan—a beloved rabbi and influential mindfulness teacher, who is diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. Living each day fully, she turned dying into an opportunity to experience gratitude.

Paula will join us live from Israel for a conversation with Rabbi Jacqueline Koch Ellenson about the experience of filming this intimate portrait of Cowan’s final year. Following the discussion, Rabbi Nicole Auerbach will join the conversation, delving into personal and religious perspectives on advance care. A link to watch the documentary will be made available prior to this event for all registrants.

Paula Weiman-Kelman is veteran documentary filmmaker known for moving portraits of inspiring women. Her first film Rites of Passage was a portrait of the feisty Israeli feminist icon and peace activist Alice Shalvi. Twenty years later she revisited her subject in The Re-annotated Alice.
