"Done right, an ethical will is a gift of love, a way of saying, 'This is what I found gave me satisfaction and gave my life meaning. It animated my relationship to you and to your mother (or father). May it do the same for you. I send this to you with much love.'"
from the Foreword by Rabbi Harold S. Kushner

Ethical wills are precious spiritual documents, windows into the souls of those who write them, and are often a treasured part of a family s history. These legacy letters sum up what you have learned in life, and what you want most for, and from, your loved ones.
