Near-death experiences? Channeling the dead? Is this sort of thing Jewish? Do we have a soul that survives our earthly existence? To kw the answer is to find greater understanding, comfort and purpose in our lives - and in our deaths. Rabbi Elie Kaplan Spitz relates his own experiences and those shared with him by people he has worked with as a rabbi, firsthand accounts that helped propel his own journey from sceptic to believer. Exploring what Judaism has to say about the afterlife and drawing on traditional Jewish sacred texts, Spitz analyses such profound topics as reincarnation, past life memory and the work of mediums, showing that belief in these concepts--so often approached with reluctance--is in fact true to Jewish tradition.
