"Where does it say that you have a contract with G-d to have an easy life?"the Lubavitcher Rebbe"Failure is not the enemy of success; it is its prerequisite."Rabbi Nosson Scherman
Shalom, i read the article you posted of Marsha Grant: My journey to the Grandparents i never knew..It was very touching, and thanks for posting it.I have one question to ask, and hope you will be able to when you can. When people pass away, do not they meet their loved ones? Like in Shamayim?I always imagine, ( i am not a Jew, but a follower of Hashem and His Torah, and i learn from some many Jewish blogs)..so this is how i imagine, if someone passes away, there is those in her/his family who come to meet them, and then i imagine they are happy there in the presence of Hashem...please help me understand how Jews believe when a soul passes away to the upper world. Thanks in advance.Hashem bless you and yours. smc
Thank you for your nice comment. As I am not an Orthodox Rabbi, I don't feel qualified to answer your question. May Hashem bless you as well.
