Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “When a man dies”


Rabbi Steinsaltz writes:

When a man dies, his soul is separated from his body and relates only to the ethereal beings, which he created and with which he was associated in his lifetime.

The soul finds its level.

In the case of a great sinner, this will be in the company of the destructive angels he created, who will punish him for bringing them into existence, until the full measure of remorse is exhausted.

–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
