    Hello everyone! I often get questions from non-Jewish friends about the Jewish understanding of the afterlife.
    As far as I know, Judaism does indeed believe in an afterlife, but at the same time, it teaches us to value life on earth and perhaps not promote it as “life for the world to come” because it’s not about giving people a “death wish”.

    I understand that Judaism is about living this life well (like any other religion) and not doubting the next one. But at the same time, I also understand how difficult it is for Christians and Muslims to know that the afterlife is not a major concern for Jews as it is a central feature of their religion, but we are simply not concerned about it. But why does Judaism pay less attention to the afterlife than other religions?
