A: Not the hell others believe in. Belief in the Afterlife and in Reward & Punishment (consequence of our choices) are in Maimonides’ basic 13 Principles of Judaism. But there’s no eternal damnation in our books, and hell is more of a soul-refinery (spiritual washing machine with hot and cold cycles, if you will) than a punishment.

Hell isn’t a physical place, so this story shouldn’t be taken literally. Someone was shown a vision of dinnertime in heaven and in hell. Both had tables laden with food, but the utensils were useless as they were over two feet long. In hell they went hungry, and in heaven they fed each other across the table.
