10 soul powers; man woman one entity The idea of the 10 soul powers mirroring the 10 Divine attributes is a basic axiom of Kabblah and Chassidus. There is very clear explanation on this in the beginning of book one of Tanya (the first five or six chapters) available on this web site.

The idea of a man-women is taught in the Oral Law and brought down by Rashi on Chumash (also available on this web site) in the section on creation. There are other opinions as well. Reply

What do you mean by 10 soul powers of Man? Did you say that these are like the attributes of G-d?
Thank you,
P.S. Your comment about the one entitiy man/woman creature, is that something all Jewish people agree with and believe? Or is that a Kabbala point of view? Reply
