What happens to us after we die? According to Jewish Law, our physical bodies get buried but our souls live on. In this course we will begin to explore what happens when we die, how does Judaism view and approach the afterlife and the roles of Resurrection, the Messiah, and Angels and Demons. We will study Jewish Mourning Customs as well Biblical texts and Liturgy; Resurrection; Messianic Age; and current liturgical traditions.
