I had a conversation that was recorded on the topic “Preparing for Childbirth,” as part of a series called “Family and Children.” I spoke with:
Dr. Yoel Shofaro – a specialist in treating infertility,
Hagit Telem – project manager at “Beit Kabbalah L’Am,”
Niv Navon – manager of the department responsible for disseminating our materials on the Internet.
We compared the processes of conception and the embryo’s development in the mother’s womb that take place in the root – the soul’s development in the spiritual world, with the branch – what happens in our world. Dr. Yoel Shofaro is one of the leading practicing specialists in the field of infertility treatment, and he explained what modern science knows about the conception of life and the main problems of infertility today. We compared this with cases of infertility in the Torah and the conception of our souls. Why did we talk about this? Because the most important event in our lives is when the Upper Parztuf – called “mother” (Ima) – is pregnant with us – with our soul!
