Welcome to the Nishma Insight Discussion Forum blog.

The NISHMA INSIGHT is our popular dvar Torah, distributed almost every week by e-mail, that touches upon an important concept in the Parsha, theme in a holiday or event in contemporary society.

Often, readers respond, via e-mail, with comments that initiate a further dialogue. Through this Discussion Forum, we now wish to open this dialogue to others. If you have a comment on the INSIGHT, we invite you place to your comments here; then we invite everyone to join the discussion.

(If you are not receiving the NISHMA INSIGHT, we invite you join our mailing/e-mail list through completing our sign-up form available at our website.)

  1. Consider
    V'eeneetem et Nafshoteichem
    As representing Innuy for the "Nefesh Bahameet"

    Which can be understood and experienced as a form of liberation for the higher levels of Ru'ach and N'shamah.

    So yes the Nefesh is [passively] afflicted, but in such a way as to expose the Ru'ach and N'shamah, to let them shine forth so to speak.
