And, at least based on the article, you don't know what you're talking about. But I have no further interest in discussing it with you.

There are different types of Judaism, just as there are different types of Buddhism. The poster is Chasidic, an extremely Orthodox sect of Judaism. The site called My Jewish Learning is not.

Just FYI.

Apparently, according to Tzaphkiel.

I am not Jewish myself. I just had some interest at one point because I worked for a business owned by Satmar Chasidim for a while in their community in Brooklyn and learned something of their ways.

I am a pescatarian, and their food choices are good because of the dairy/meat separation. That was the most important thing to me, along with the fact that they eat a lot of cheesecake when observing the holiday called Shavuot.

Only skimmed the actual theology, though.

Thanks, MQ. The bold explains a lot. I will moderate my future interactions accordingly.

What do y'all think?
There's nothing in the Bible about reincarnation.
However, the Roman philosopher Origenes Adamantius put forward the idea of the pre-existence of the soul.
Some totalitarian sects give these ideas for reincarnation

A poor carpenter (Joseph) in Galilee.

The Bethlehem city was in the province of Galilee.
King Herod ruled there, and Christ was his subject.
