This November, the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI) will unveil its fall course, SoulQuest: The Journey Through Life, Death, and Beyond. The twin mysteries of life and death have fascinated philosophers and laymen alike since the dawn of time. Many questions have been asked, but far fewer have been answered.
“This is a classic case of the market creating the demand for this course,” says local JLI instructor, Rabbi Yosef Konikov. “We have received consistent requests from students to create a course that addresses these issues head on. Sooner or later, everybody must reckon with questions of their own mortality.”
