Talmud & Tobacco - "Death, Dying and the Afterlife"
Time & Location
About the Event
"Death, Dying and the Afterlife"
What does Judaism teach about the process of dying; and what happens after death? How do we prepare for death and what lies beyond? Come explore this powerful topic as we learn with Rabbi Barclay about our Sages' teachings about the progression of the soul through the process of death. The evening will begin with a special Yom HaShoah memorial candle lighting and brief service honoring those who died in the Holocaust, and then continue with a passionate discussion on the Jewish teachings surrounding death, dying, and what comes after.
We will be joined by some special guests from local mortuaries and cemeteries to add to experience and wisdom, so come join the learning and dialogue.
Like all programming at Temple Ner Simcha, this class is free of charge; and is open to all adults: men and women, and people of all knowledge and experience levels. Complimentary premium cigars will be provided as always, and there is a non-smoking section for those who would like to learn about the topic without being affected by the smoke.
