Writing a ‘Legacy Letter’ 

with Jay Sherwin 

February 9, at 3:00 PM 

This online workshop is designed to introduce the concept of “legacy letters” and to encourage  you to craft your own legacy document. A legacy letter (also called an “ethical will”) is a written  document that allows you to share your life lessons, express your values and transmit your  blessings to future generations. The workshop includes discussion and brief writing exercises to  help you examine your life history, explore key themes and capture important insights. It offers  advice, encouragement and a model structure to help you organize your thoughts and create a  legacy document that can be shared with family and friends.
