EXPLORING JEWISH VIEWS OF THE AFTERLIFE: Contemporary Implications with Reb Simcha Raphael, Ph.D. 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. Yet in the traditions of Jewish mysticism are found extensive teachings on the afterlife journey of the soul. Through an exploration of sacred texts, story-telling and discussion, we shall explore these teachings and discover applications of Jewish views of the afterlife in responding to the human encounter with death.
