Approach death and dying the Jewish way. Judaism has a wide range of views and practices surrounding death and dying. During this class we will discuss both the halachic (Jewish law) approach and the practices most typical of our community. We will answer questions like:

What happens when we die? Is there an afterlife…or even reincarnation? Is cremation permissible? Are there prayers to say just before death? How soon should someone be buried? What mourning practices are common today?
