JOURNEY OF THE SOUL An Exploration of Life, Death, and What Lies Beyond A SIX-SESSION COURSE FROM THE ROHR JEWISH LEARNING INSTITUTE
What is a soul? Where does it go after it departs this world? Do Jews believe in heaven and hell? Can souls communicate with us from the afterlife? How does reincarnation work?
Journey of the Soul explores the mysteries surrounding the spiritual dimension of our existence—our destiny that continues even after we’ve shed our earth-bound body suit. We examine the transition of the soul into the hereafter, the kinds of legacies that are valued even after we’ve forsaken this earthly existence, and the accompanying emotional journey and rituals that help the soul and those closest to it prepare for its new reality.

Combining ancient wisdom with modern psychological concepts, Journey of the Soul encourages a thoughtful exploration of what can be a very scary but important subject.

Journey of the Soul examines death —and Jewish life—with an uplifting blend of Torah-based scholarship and contemporary psychological perspectives. Highly recommended, especially for members of the Helping Professions.

A course such as this has never been more important, at a time when we risk losing sight of the value of death as an opportunity to explore who we are and to connect on a profound level with those we love.
