Hundreds of shluchim across the US are preparing to launch the JLI winter course, Journey of the Soul next week, a new six-session course exploring Judaism’s approach to life, death, and life after death.
The course will provide continuing education credit to the doctors, psychologists, and other mental health professionals who attend thanks to a partnership with the Einstein College of Medicine to offer AMA and APA-approved courses.
Hundreds of shluchim across the US and around the world are preparing to launch the JLI winter course, Journey of the Soul next week. The course will provide continuing education credit to the doctors, psychologists, and other mental health professionals who attend thanks to a partnership with the Einstein College of Medicine to offer AMA and APA-approved courses.
Doctors and therapists on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic have had to face difficult conversations with patients and their families over the last months and are seeking to recharge their batteries with relevant information. Dr. John Martin Fischer, Director of the Immortality Project and a distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the University of California endorsed the course saying, “The Jewish tradition offers unique answers to the intellectual issues and also strategies for coming to terms with death. I highly recommend this course.”
Many people wonder about what happens after a person’s life on earth concludes. Where do we go? Do the souls of the deceased retain an attachment to their loved ones? The course provides the knowledge that helps reduce fear and strengthen resilience in the face of loss or crisis.
Rabbi Naftali Silberberg, JLI’s co-director of curriculum and the author of the course expects the course will do more than help people cope with death. “It is our hope that participants will leave with a new understanding of what life truly is and will be inspired to use every day to its fullest potential and make a lasting impact on the world.”
