KARMA AND KNEIDELACH: JEWISH NOTIONS OF THE LAWS OF CAUSALITY AND REINCARNATION

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will explore Jewish notions of karma and will discuss the similarities and differences with respect to the South Asian use of the term in the Hindu, Buddhist and Jain faith traditions. Generally, karma, in the Indian tradition, refers to the concept of the laws of causality, reincarnation and the transmigration of the soul. While these may roughly equate with Jewish notions of midah keneged midah and gilgul, substantial differences remain. In exploring the concept of karma in both the Indian and Jewish traditions, we will attempt to answer the question: Do Jews believe in karma? Participation and discussion is invited from all attending this session.
