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.

*Required book: The Death of Death: Resurrection and Immortality in Jewish Thought by Rabbi Neil Gillman

Classes will be on Wednesdays at 1:30 pm: February 3rd, 10th, 24th & March 2nd, 9th
