The Rav's Stories: Tzemach Tzedek & Kaf Hakelah

Wednesday, 15 December, 2021 - 11:58 am

In today's Tanya portion there is a discussion about kaf hakelah. That is a soul experience where once the soul has departed the body and resides in Gan Eden, it is made to believe that it is still on earth. The result is that it behaves as it did on Earth. The burning shame that results from that is part of the soul's cleansing process.

A Chossid asked the Tzemach Tzedek, "Perhaps we are all in Kaf Hakelah right now?!" 

The Rebbe answered, "If this was Kaf Hakelah you wouldn't see my face.''
