Heaven is how we are remembered
If we do good in this world and follow the Torah mitzvot then people will regard us and our following generations with respect. Heaven is us being remembered in a positive light while hell means people curse our memories and prefer not to remember us,.

HaShem Knows Best" !!!.
If we want to please HaShem we must do what His word says regardless of the consequenses, because we can only be blessed by our God if we follow His Word from our heart. His Word says we must treat strangers like one of our own, because we as Jews were once strangers in a land. So what if we get to crowded, if we are following HaShem's word we will all come out smelling like roses. If we could just learn, "HaShem knows best" !!!. Lets be determined to do everything His way!!!. Then we will be sure of living with Him forever in a blessed place!!!!

The Torah concept is: according to the effort is the reward. If we don't choose to keep Torah and Mitzvos but choose to act like there is no Torah or the Seven Noahide laws then we go to hell. A place devoid of G-d. We are cut off, we chose to cut ourselves off to HIM in this world, so it follows in the next

I thought all the Sadducees were gone. Are you the last one? ...Or did someone build a time machine and bring you back?

Neither may exist....
Personally, I believe we pay for our transgressions here on earth during our lifetime! Similarly, we enjoy our rewards too! I consider our lives like plants, etc., we die, return to the earth, leaving our seed(children) to carry on our legacy. Why wait for rewards or punishments? It all happens during our lifetime!

Yes its true what you say. But its important to realize that the Torah will only be bliss in the next world to those that realize its importance while still in this world.

That kid is waaaaay too amateurish an actor. He needs another year of training and then maaaaybe...on top of it the dialogue was inane and difficult to follow. maybe partly because out of context? Anyway, not enough to go on, so nothin to respond to.

Heaven is being in the Divine Presence.
Hell is being in the Divine Presence.
The only difference is YOU. Imagine a sinner's discomfort at being in the Divine Presence, where everything he ever said or did is an open book.

Heaven has nothing to do with what most people think of angels playing harps in a beautiful garden. I once saw a quote from a great rabbi (I forget who): "Heaven is learning Talmud all day. The only difference is that there you'll enjoy it."
