Jez: A Letter for Life

Jez: A Letter for Life

Only months after becoming a father for the first time, Jeremy Spinak AM, the youngest elected president of the Jewish Board of Deputies, is diagnosed with an extremely rare form of cancer on his heart. With a prognosis of less than 6 months to live, he urgently sets out to document for his children who he is, what he has achieved and what has given his life meaning. With his twins less than one year old, his motivation to survive is intense as he battles with hope and pragmatism in his final months. What matters most in life is crystallised as he faces everything he has to lose. As universal as death is, it is only when staring into its face, that the meaning of life becomes apparent.
