Death of a loved one and the afterlife I am not a very religious person but, I became more close to understanding Judaism and realizing how much my faith could do for me, until I listened to you. My Mother died this past week, your words have put my heart and soul at ease. Thank you. Reply

I can not understand how it can be that everything is forgivable.Are you saying that even people who committed horrible crimes are forgivable too? Reply

G-dly soul the same as spirit? Thank you for your question/comment. The word "spirit" is a vague word to describe G-d's animating life-force within everything. When we talk about a G-dly soul, we speak specifically about the G-dly spirit within the human being. As Rabbi Isaac Luria teaches us that even a stone has a spirit that keeps it alive. When using the word spirit, we can also refer to the G-dly force that drives us towards negativity. The term G-dly Soul is that G-dly spirit that seeks spirituality and G-dliness in our lives. Reply

G-dly soul the same as spirit? To me many new things or maybe just different definitions of words. One of them: I thought we have body, soul and spirit, and that the spirit is the part that is the image of G-d, since, as I`ve understood g-d is not flesh but spirit, isnt that so? Maybe it is an other defenition of the words and that when you say G-dly soul, it is what I call spirit so in fact we mean the same? Reply

Yes, she is home now May you be blessed. Your beautiful, beloved child is home, in the light of eternal love. The Jewish woman, now gone from this Earth, the great love of my life, is there to welcome her. Reply

death and the afterlife this is great stuff. you need to go mainstream so that people don't think that all there is to judaism is what Hollywood says. Reply

I loved this message I am not Jewish but this message answered alot of questions that I had and gave me so much clarity about life as we live it and life after death and also our purpose on this earth. It was powerful.
