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

Yoel Halevi 5 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.

Hebrew In Israel |13th or 14th? – Learn Torah

Yoel Halevi One comments

One of the questions I get asked all the time is when to celebrate the Pessach? This issue arises because of the wording of Exo 12:6

וְהָיָה לָכֶם לְמִשְׁמֶרֶת עַד אַרְבָּעָה עָשָׂר יוֹם לַחֹדֶשׁ הַזֶּה וְשָׁחֲטוּ אֹתוֹ כֹּל קְהַל עֲדַת יִשְׂרָאֵל בֵּין הָעַרְבָּיִם

“You are to keep it until the fourteenth day of the month, and then the entire assembly of the community of Isra’el will slaughter it at dusk” (CJB)
