Watch your mailbox: Journey of the Soul

JLI Journey of the Soul JOURNEY OF THE SOUL 

What is a soul? Where does it go after it departs this world? Do Jews believe in heaven and hell? Can souls communicate with us from the afterlife? How does reincarnation work?

Journey of the Soul explores the mysteries surrounding our spiritual existence that continues even after we’ve shed our earth-bound body suit. We examine the transition of the soul into the hereafter, and the accompanying emotional journey that helps the soul and those closest to it prepare for its new reality.

Journey of the Soul will also help you focus on the parts of life that really matter; assist you in becoming more in touch with yourself and with your spiritual dimension; and help you uncover a newfound relationship with loved ones who are no longer physically here.


Journey of the Soul will be held on 6 Tuesdays, starting on October 27th, at our new center.
