Subject: TOMORROW: Halachic Living Will Open House at [location and time]

Body of email:

Dear fellow [shul name] members,

Be sure to attend our Halachic Living Will Open House, tomorrow, [date] at [time], at [location]!

There are two options:

  1. Download the attached halachic living will form, and fill it out, but DO NOT SIGN IT. This will save you time at the program.
  2. If you don’t have the time or inclination to do this in advance, don’t worry! You can fill out the form tomorrow at the Open House. We will have plenty of pens and blank forms.

Please bring your driver’s license with you.

If you have any questions, there will be people at the event who will be able to address them.

If you fill out the form ahead of time, DO NOT SIGN IT until you are in front of the witnesses.

After you have your halachic living will form witnessed, you will receive an EMES Card, provided by NASCK. The EMES card is a brief summary of the halachic living will that also ensures that your choice of healthcare proxy and rabbi can easily be determined in case of emergency.

I would like to thank [names] for encouraging us all to take these important steps, and I would also like to thank our wonderful group of volunteers who will be helping out at the event!
A special thank you to NASCK for providing us with the resources and support to put this program together.

Congratulations for taking steps to protect yourself!
