    There in nothing in the written Torah that goes into any very specific details of the afterlife, there is on the other hand much more written about it in the Talmud. I have to go to work here in a few so I will get back to you as soon as I can on this.

    Actually, most of our answers are Midrashic.

    You're right I guess. I do how ever believe heaven will be a physical place and just spiritual. Maybe more like earth was originally intended to be like in the beginning.

    There is the World of Truth where I believe the trial of one's life will occur and then the World to come of which there are different levels and places for Jews with various Mitzvot achievements.
