Same Address


In the World to Come there is no eating or drinking … no business or competition; rather, the righteous sit, their crowns on their heads, and enjoy the radiance of the divine presence

Talmud, Berachot 17a

Said Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov:

“Do you think that paradise and purgatory are so different from each other? No, no, they are one and the same. Paradise, for the righteous, is to bask in the radiance of G-d. This shall be their reward. And how will the wicked be punished? They, too, shall be brought to paradise to behold the radiance of the Divine, which they won’t know what to make of. To experience the reality of G-d, and at the same time to recognize how distant one is from His truth–there is no greater agony for a soul.”

Adapted from the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe by Yanki Tauber.
