Life after death in Tanakh and in early Jewish thought
Wed 2. Mar | Kl 18:00
What does Judaism say about life after death? What is the practical significance of the images of death in Jewish life?
The earliest Jewish sacred writings provide insight into how death and life after death is perceived. In her lecture Diana Edelman will go into the concepts and ideas found in Judaism on these topics.
