About this Death Cafe

Our Death Café, sponsored by Jewish Gateways, meets on the 4th Sunday of each month from 4:00-5:30 pm, PDT.

Join us in a confidential, safe, and caring environment to discuss death and dying. Thoughts, feelings, and experiences are all relevant. We welcome participants of any background, religion, culture, or belief. 

Relevant additional resources will be offered upon request.

Many report that participating in Death Cafés reduces their anxiety about death and dying (their own or their loved ones’), which can enhance the way we live in the present. Most people leave feeling connected and uplifted.
