What Happens When We Die? A look at Jewish Views of Death and the Afterlife
Like most religions, Judaism is rich in its understanding of what happens when we die, yet for most of us, it seems to be the least talked/taught about topic in all of Jewish theology and practice. This course will attempt to delve into the evolution of the Jewish views of death and the afterlife from the Bible to our time, while also exploring the rituals, liturgy and practices surrounding death.
