An Added Soul For Strength

(An early posting before Shabbat – Shabbat shalom!)

Elul 4/August 10, 2013 [Shabbat] – On Shabbat, we each receive an added soul, that we might have the strength to uplift our thoughts and purify our desires.

(Talmud, Betza, 16a)

For reflection: How do you/could you experience this added soul? Spend a few moments today considering and meeting your added soul. What would you ask of it to support you, for which you need greater spiritual strength?
