Nefesh haHayyim  

With Rabbi Ira Stone 

This shiur is based on Nefesh HaHayyim, The Soul of Life, by Rabbi Chaim Volozhin, viewed through a Mussar perspective. The translation we are using describes the book as Nefesh HaTzimTzum to emphasise the doctrine of tzimtzum or “conflation.” The course began as a free offering by Rabbi Stone during the early days of quarantine in the Summer of 2020, and has blossomed into a deep and ongoing study. In the introduction, this text is described as a Shulchan Aruch of Hashkafa, “a formal presentation of how a Jew is to view and philosophically interact with the world.”
