Nde I am reading about people's experiences with ndes and I'm fascinated by it. Hopefully this is real because I'm not well and would like to think that after this life despite what I've done I may be in a wonderful place instead of being beaten by demons as I heard from one Jewish women's account. It's difficult to think of the end when you imagine horror but if there's beauty we would not be afraid of the end Reply

I had a ND at three weeks I have always sensed the spiritual world I had another ND at 35 no near death experience but now mynspiritual connection is like a door I can open or close. Never saw "the other "side" that I remember but My favorite movie is Defending Your Life with Meryl Streep sounds like your experiences. I sense the movie is one aspect of what happens. I also am certain of reincarnation. Reply

This was fascinating, thank you. I would love to chat to you one day, but I'm in Sydney. What a wonderful message from your father. I was told a similar thing in the experience I had - not a NDE. May we be ready when the day comes. Reply

NDE After studying thanatology and a tremendous amount of additional reading about NDE, I can only conclude that the experiences are very similar (regardless of religious affiliation).
However, the individuals "belief structure" helps guide them with comfort through the NDE.
Hopefully, this makes sense to those who read it. Reply

An NDE Connection to the Future I am Jewish and experienced an NDE when my son was 6 years old. The NDE has something to do with a purpose for my son. As time passed, I then experienced the death of my 28 year old son. He was living in Israel when he died. Many of his friends kept going to an Orthodox Rabbi in Jerusalem to question why such a person dies. He was the kind of person that always helped people and brought joy into a room. Finally this Rabbi in Jerusalem went to a Chabad Center in Jerusalem. As he walked in an old Chassidic Rabbi grab his arm and said ,"your here about the boy,come we need to talk. And they did talk. He knew about me, my son's father and everything about my son. We were told that my son had reach the highest level in heaven. And he was the Rabbi's mentor and was the highest level mentor the Rabbi had ever had. The Orthodox Rabbi ask what my son mentored to the Rabbi ."About the tomorrows to come" was one answer. Your presentation was helpful to my understanding. Reply

My NDE similar. very interesting, I too had the same experience, in my NDE my soul was declared Jewish and god promised that my children would be taken in by the Chabad community and not to worry they would be taught in those ways after I die. I was laying on my back crying saying thank you, I felt comfort and as I prepared to go over to the other side, or was there already many Jewish people from Chabad came in a group and I felt a bright light hit my forehead. God repaired my body and let me come back for my children. I am not religious and I've never "been Jewish", but I started to light the candles because of what I saw and heard, (far too much to write) I visited this Chabad page only because I had this strange NDE when I have never been affiliated with Chabad, never knew god existed for certain until NDE. I am not into organized religion but I have a special feeling for Chabad now that im humiliated about because people think I might have gone crazy, but cant ignore my life given back to me. Reply

To Anonymous, London I am really sorry to hear of your loss. May G_d comfort you and aleviate your fears. Wherever else your brother may be he will always live in your heart. Reply

Afterlife My older brother passed away recently. I kept refusing to believe he's dead and hoping that G-d will give him another chance. Although I was in this hope I kept this all a secret from everybody else.
Now that the funeral has passed. I am really upsetting myself wondering if he's OK & where he is. I love and miss him like I could ever comprehend.
I wish I could talk to him he died so young. Reply

How Come Hi Nomi:
I have heard many many accounts and often there is a life review. The individuals judge themselves. However, the Jewish experiences I have heard are very intense, seemingly more so than non Jews. Non the less, there is no more powerful information than an NDE to Mkarev & Mchazaik people. These experiences have been given in order to share with others. Reply

NDEs The works of Robt. Crookall are thorough studies of NDE experiences also OBEs (out-of-body) Reply

Julie Durham, UK September 3, 2012

further to Nomi's post In my NDE I judged myself. There was another figure there but there was only love from it, not judgement. I think we judge ourselves in the form that we most likely expect from our religious practice. All thoughts are self generated I think, but the unconditional love and forgiveness given in NDE is hard for anyone to imagine Reply

NDE NDEs are shared by Jews, Christians, even atheists. Must be objective experiences. Reply

Nomi freeman Toronto July 24, 2012

How come I recently received a call from a Jew who had an interesting NDE. He agreed to share his story with me, but wanted to remain anonymous . Following my lecture on the topic, I also interviewed three women who had NDEs. What I found interesting is that several observant Jews had a Bais Din in their experience. I don't know of people in other groups who found themselves judged by a tribunal. Reply

ethnicity are there jews and gentiles in the next dimension? Reply

Donn Caldwell, NJ July 18, 2012

How come Jews are so reluctant to share their NDE stories? I have sought people willing to have their stories recorded and put on Youtube...yo no avail. There are plenty of other faiths putting their stories out there and precious few Jewish stories. Reply

The books mentioned and more classes 'G-d, rationality and mysticism', by Dr Irving Block, available thru Amazon.
'The view from above', by Rachel Noam,might be out of print, some Jewish libraries have it.
In regards to more classes, in adition to the "Afterlife" series I have four classes on spirituality at this site, you will find them in the video section, by searching "Nomi Freeman".
For future classes, you can check regularly, there are many excellent teachings added daily. Reply

My Mom Dear Nomi, Thank you for sharing these beautiful experiences from above. My purpose concerns my Mom whom I was very closed to and who passed away very suddendly although she was still dynamic and young. I was really despaired without her and cried a lot after her passing. I could not accept it. Shortly, I wanted to know where she was above and how was she. I read a few books on death to get answers but this did not help me much about my Mom. One month after her passing, I was having a nap and I clearly heard her as if it was a' phone call' She had a very joyful voice telling me that everything was green around her, that there were plenty of trees and many birds singing. Obviously the place was really wonderful. She seemed very very happy where she was. Her 'call' did not last long BUT when I awoke I was so calm, serene and pleased to know at last that everyhting was good for her. This helped me in a way to overcome my pain.
I wish now my sister of righteous memory could talk to me as well.... Reply

NDE I had an NDE many years ago which totally changed my life. I was met by a being from which eminated so much love that even though I was in a wretched state in my life I knew that I was so precious. I looked at my life and found it wanting so I begged to come back so that I could find a way to make a difference" in this world. One month later I became pregnant for the first time and I have spent my life raising my three children and my husband as best I could. I also began a spiritual search trying this and that and gradually making progress. Now I find myself here studying Torah on Chabad. It feels like a returning, a coming home. I keep on learning and trying to open up my life to do more good - G_d willing. Bless you for bringing this subject up, I have not been truely comfortable talking about it to anyone before but here it is like falling off a log! Reply
