Does Judaism believe in the afterlife? Unequivocally, the answer is yes! Unfortunately, in contemporary Jewish life we have lost touch with traditional Jewish wisdom on the afterlife. In presentations throughout Shabbat on Saturday, December 7, Reb Simcha Raphael shall help us explore Judaism’s teachings on life after death, particularly in Kabbalah—Jewish mysticism.
Through discussion, story-telling, and study of mystical texts, we shall explore the relevance of these teachings in dealing with the human encounter with death. We shall also discover the connection between Jewish teachings on the afterlife and traditional Jewish death rituals.
Reb Simcha Raphael will give a D’var Torah during Shabbat morning services, will lead a discussion after Kiddush, and will give a talk on Kabbalah in the evening, starting at 7:30 PM. All discussions are free of charge and open to the public. We hope you join these insightful talks! See our flyer for more details.
