What Will Your Legacy Be?
From Bobbi Eggers
Are You Living the Way You Want to be Remembered?
It seems like everyone focuses on leaving a financial legacy. We’ve spent a lifetime amassing possessions and pass them on to our children. But is that really our legacy? What are the gifts of ourselves that we leave behind? What will our children tell their children about us? Living your legacy is by design not default and has the power to spur you on to live a mindful, proactive, purposeful, and fully expressed life. You will only make this journey once. What kind of journey will it be?
Focus on taking action around your values, passion and generative potential which can be a catalyst for positive, enduring change that surpasses your lifetime.
What will be your legacy?
What are the seeds you are planting for the next generation?
How can you channel your passion to create lasting value?
What is your contribution to changing the world?
Whose lives have you touched?
On Thursday, June 13, in the Cole Auditorium of the Greenwich Library, witness a unique, lively talk with Rabbi Mitchell Hurvitz, Senior Rabbi at Temple Sholom, the largest synagogue membership in Greenwich and the Reverend Marek Zabriskie, Rector of Christ Church Greenwich, one of the largest Episcopal churches in New England. These two powerful speakers will continue a decades long friendship between two neighboring congregations. Two different perspectives? Or not. Two men of God, two prominent respected speakers. Please join us for this fantastic opportunity. Ask the questions you have always wanted to ask.
Rabbi Mitchell M. Hurvitz has been the Senior Rabbi of Temple Sholom for the past 18 years. He is the co-founder of The Sholom Center for Interfaith Learning and Fellowship, and is the president of the Greenwich Fellowship of Clergy, a position he has held several times. As one of the prominent religious leaders in the Greenwich area and beyond, Rabbi Mitch is frequently asked to speak at synagogues and churches, study groups, and other community institutions and universities, and to share his teachings with both local and national publications. He has also been a member of the Rabbinical Assembly Executive Committee and has served on the Rabbinical Assembly’s Financial and Development Committees.
The Reverend Marek Zabriskie recently joined Christ Church Greenwich as Rector. Previously, he served as Rector of St. Thomas Church, Whitemarsh in Fort Washington, PA for 24 years and developed a strong spiritual formation ministry for children, youth, and adults. Prior to his time in PA, Marek served as the Associate Rector of St. James’s in Richmond, VA, and the Assistant to the Rector of St. George’s in Nashville, TN. Originally from Detroit, MI, Marek studied philosophy at Emory University and trained for the priesthood at Yale and Berkeley Divinity Schools. He was ordained in 1990. Marek has published and edited several books, including The Bible Challenge, a popular study guide, with well over a million users worldwide, that helps people read the entire Bible in a year. He created the Center for Biblical Studies to promote The Bible Challenge nationally and globally.
He is also a member of the Compass Rose Society, which assists the Archbishop of Canterbury, and has preached throughout the United States and overseas.
