Soul Searching: Jewish Views on the Afterlife

Hosted By: The Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning

In Judaism we use the word “soul” and the phrase “the world to come,” but do we really know what they mean? We won’t truly know about the afterlife until our moment arrives, leaving us with many more questions than answers. How does Judaism view the idea of the “soul”? What happens to the soul after we die? Do we have one soul during our lifetime or do we have a chance to develop our souls after life ends? Do Jews believe in reincarnation or people communicating with us from beyond the grave? What does Judaism think of mediums? Join expert Melton teacher Rabbi Michele Faudem for this meaningful, four-part exploration of Jewish views on all these topics related to the afterlife.
