To Yazmin and Anon from FL
Reincarnation IS a Jewish concept, not just Indian. Yazmin, our loved ones are waiting to greet us in heaven. A soul is a flame, and a small bit can be removed to light another flame without being extinguished. One soul can be reincarnated yet leave behind enough of itself to be there, in heaven, watching his/her loved ones from on high

A comment to Yazmin Taylor
Hi, Yazmin: I would like to know where did you get the information about the souls coming down to another body? As far as I know that belief comes from India, where they believes in reencarnation. They don't kill cows, because they could be killing a relative; thats why in India don't eat meat from cows. Maybe you have misunderstood the information.

question
I just have a question. If you say that the soul comes down to another body every day. How can you be sure that we are going to meet our love ones in heave after we die? what if my relative came down and is living another life. How Am I going to see that love one if I die?

portion of Chayei Sara
I really enjoyed the explanations on this Torah portion. It is a good lesson for all husbans and wives on Shalom Bayit.
Better yet the explanation on body and soul was incredible. Thanks.
