What Are the Jewish Views of the Afterlife?

Reb Simcha Raphael, Founding Director of the DA’AT Institute for Death Awareness, Advocacy and Training

Visiting Rabbi/Author Reb Simcha Raphael speaks on this topic on Sunday, March 9 at 7:30 pm at Congregation Nevei Kodesh (19th and Glenwood, Boulder).

Judaism has extensive teachings on the afterlife and the postmortem journey of the soul. In this evening of learning we shall explore how these teachings can help us see the “soul-guiding” dimension to traditional Jewish rituals of death, dying, mourning and memorialization. Reb Simcha Raphael is Founding Director of the DA’AT Institute for Death Awareness, Advocacy and Training. He teaches Jewish Mysticism at Temple University and works as a transpersonal psychotherapist and spiritual director. Ordained by Reb Zalman as a Rabbinic Pastor, he is author of “Jewish Views of the Afterlife.”

This topic can be of interest to non-Jews as well.
