A Orthodox Jew was asked these Questions. 1. What do Jews teach is the condition of those who are dead? (consious/un-consious - are they aware they are dead, or not aware of anything?) 2. What is the fate of the wicked? (hell, ect.) 3. What is the fate of the righteous? (heaven, ect.) 4. How do Jews veiw birthday celebrations? (traditionally) 5. Do you think man is comprised of a physical body and a non-physical soul? 6. I don't think there's a uniform Jewish belief about these things. A Reform Jew and an Orthodox Jew and a Conservative Jew and a Reconstructionist Jew could give four different answers.
