The ancient ethical will is a beautiful tool for those who don’t want their legal will to be their only “last words.” Updated for a modern audience, the ethical will is a non-binding personal legacy letter (or recording) that is attached as a side document to legal documents. With roots in medieval Jewish wisdom tradition, the ethical will has been rediscovered by people of all ages and faiths as a lovely and sensible instrument for timeless communication of the messages and information too important to go unsaid or fall between the cracks of generations. In short, ethical wills are love letters. They are created in the midst of life, works in progress by their nature, deeply satisfying for those who write them and treasured by all who are lucky enough to receive them.
