On Sunday, January 27, 2019 at 7:00 PM, the Beth El Synagogue of East Windsor Women’s League presents ‘Exploring Jewish Views of the Afterlife’. Does Judaism believe in the afterlife? Unequivocally, the answer is yes! In our contemporary society it seems we have lost touch with traditional Jewish wisdom on the afterlife journey of the soul. During this presentation, Simcha Raphael, Ph.D., will explore Judaism’s little-known teachings on life after death, particularly in Jewish mysticism. Through discussion, storytelling and study, we shall explore the relevance of these teachings in dealing with the reality of death and loss today.
SIMCHA RAPHAEL, Ph.D. is Founding Director of the DA’AT Institute for Death Awareness, Advocacy and Training. He is Adjunct Faculty in the Religion Department at LaSalle University, and works as a psychotherapist and spiritual director in Philadelphia.
Light refreshments will be served. RSVP by 1/22/2019.
Beth El Synagogue is located at 50 Maple Stream Road, East Windsor, NJ, 08520; 609-443-4454; www.bethel.net.
