dc.description.abstractOn a Friday morning, in the very late summer, 5782 years ago, HaShem, using the generative nature of soil, formed the first human being, Adom HaRishon (Sanhedrin 38b). As with all animals, Adom HaRishon was provided with a life-giving force, or nefesh. However, Adom HaRishon was unique among the animal kingdom, as he was given an additional spirit, a soul (neshama). “And HaShem God formed the man from dust of the ground, and He blew into his nostrils the soul of life and man became a living being” (Bereishis 2:7).en_US
