When Life is Over: Where is Your Soul? Jewish Perspectives on the Afterlife
In this conversation we will survey the diverse range of Jewish conceptions of the soul, the afterlife, resurrection, and reincarnation. We will also reflect on some of the big questions at the end of life: Do I fear death, have I lived a good life, will I be alone?
This is one part of a five-part series Walking in the Valley of the Shadow. You may attend any or all topics in any location in any order.
For the third straight year, Lehrhaus, The Gamliel Institute, Sinai Memorial Chapel and The Bay Area Jewish Healing Center address the challenging issues surrounding death and dying.
