Life After Death
With Rabbi David Wolpe
July 1, 2009
What does Judaism hold about life after death? Jewish prayers and rabbinic literature mention "the world to come" and "the garden of Eden," but these texts also discuss the resurrection of the dead. In Jewish mysticism there is also mention of gilgul, reincarnation. Many Jews don't learn anything about Jewish beliefs about life after death as part of their Jewish education.
Rabbi David Volpe, a popular Conservative movement rabbi at Sinai Temple in Los Angeles, has a compelling way of explaining Jewish attitudes toward life after death. He made this video for Jewish TV Network. Let us know what you think.
