‘In The Afterlife We Have To Be Married?’
Your Vox Tablet preview
On next week’s Vox Tablet podcast (which we’re actually posting tomorrow so you can enjoy it over Labor Day weekend), host Sara Ivry goes a-wandering through the century-old Mount Carmel Cemetery with Andy Bachman, the rabbi of Congregation Beth Elohim in Brooklyn. Together, they talk about how shifts in American Jewish life are playing out in our attitudes toward death and burial. It’s a heavy conversation at times (as befits the High Holiday season), but it has its share of lighter moments as well, like this digression into television references to the afterlife.
