Hebrew In Israel | Not Speaking The Name – Learn Torah

Yoel Halevi No Comments

Lately I have been seeing the renewal of the debate in regard to the use of the name of God. The subject at hand is not about the correct pronunciation, but on the base subject of using the name in overall. 

It has become a common claim that the Jewish sages, or rabbis, are the ones who decreed a prohibition on speaking God’s name. However, an examination of the sources leads to a completely different conclusion.

Hebrew In Israel | Gilgul Neshamot (Reincarnation of Souls) – Learn Torah

Yoel Halevi 3 comments

I have been asked multiple times on the subject of reincarnation in the bible and Judaism. The following are my personal thoughts and understandings as being a person who has come across this belief in mainstream Judaism of today. As a person who has been raised in Orthodoxy and has also received academic training, I cannot find concrete data on this belief as an ancient one. This affects the validity of said belief and opens it up to modern criticism which cannot use ancient sources.
