Jewish sources don't deal extensively with the question of an afterlife, but Jews believe that in some form a soul lives on.

G-d is not the G-d of the dead but of the living. When He said "I am the G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob he was not talking about dead people but those live with faith. They believed G-d and did not follow man made ideas. Job also said "though worms destroy my body, in my flesh will I see G-d" The prophet Ezeckiel also spoke of a Valley of Dry Bones which rose from their graves and G-d placed muscle and flesh on them. There is a Resurrection of the dead. For Mr Wolpe to state that the Bible is silent on the subject, it also states that the righteous one would not be abandoned in the grave or suffer decay. King David wrote this concerning the Messiah.
