THE Podcast about jewish ideas & culture

A project of Reboot

Episode 27: Death

Is there something peculiar to Judaism that makes us think about death differently? With no proscription for a definitive heaven or afterlife, how does that affect how we live our lives and think about death? Are Jewish rituals an effective way of dealing with grief? Are there better ways to think and talk about death with friends and family? In our final episode from season 2 we address these questions with British comedian David Baddiel (who you might remember from this season’s atheism episode), Rabbi Amichai Lau-Lavie from NYC’s Lab/Shul, founder of Death Over Dinner and DoD Jewish Edition Michael Hebb and Dan Crane’s 97-year-old nana.      


Coming up this season:

●      The False Lens of History – The photos of Roman Vishniak, the tale of America’s first Jewish murderer, and how our perception of history is shaped by the artifacts of an era.
