Reincarnation, the Afterlife, & Spiritual Community

We explore reincarnation and the afterlife from a Jewish and Swedenborgian perspective, how we can have a sense of the presence of God in our lives, and the power of community.

“In Judaism there’s certain parts of the prayer service that you can’t say unless you have at least ten people present…including the prayer that mourners say for reaffirming their faith in God when someone has died. There has to be at least ten people, so basically Judaism requires a community. And that definitely has always helped me…That’s one of those things that I think is somewhat unique to Judaism that I find really special and speaks to me in so many ways.” —Tammy
