Answer

Jewish scripture does not give a clear indication of a heaven, and it does not give a clear indication of an afterlife.

Work Step by Step

It is not the case that Jewish scripture gives a clear indication of a heaven or an afterlife. Let p and q represent the following statements: p: Jewish scripture gives a clear indication of a heaven. q: Jewish scripture gives a clear indication of an afterlife. The statement is of the form ~(p v q). An equivalent statement is ∼p ∧ ∼q Therefore the given statement is equivalent to Jewish scripture does not give a clear indication of a heaven, and it does not give a clear indication of an afterlife.
