The evening will also include a robust conversation with Dr. Zitter led by Rabbi Mitchell Wohlberg and Dr. Delia Chiaramonte.

Extremis is an Oscar-nominated 24-minute documentary film that follows Dr. Zitter at a hospital intensive care unit, as doctors, patients and families face difficult end-of-life choices.
