A Jewish Approach to the Afterlife
January 7, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$18
Angels with harps? Fluffy clouds? The pearly gates? In the popular imagination, these symbols represent a vision of “heaven,” but do they correspond to the Jewish vision of the afterlife? This panel breaks down Jewish views of eschatology and dispels popular notions of what the afterlife looks like from a Jewish perspective. Panelists will discuss how Jewish tradition views life after death while also meditating on responses to mortality in contemporary society.
Left to Right: Rabbi Pinchas Allouche of Congregation Beth Tefillah, Rabbi Micah Caplan of Congregation Or Tzion, and Rabbi Bonnie Koppell of Temple Chai. Facilitated by Sandy Rife of Mt. Sinai Cemetery.
