The Neshama Yeseirah


With the arrival of Shabbos, we all receive a neshama yeseirah (additional soul), but in some people it is more vibrant than in others.  It all depends on the preparation a person has made; the more enthusiastic his kavanah (intention), the more kedusha comes to rest on him.  ~ Ma’or Vashemesh

Tonight, when you turn around during Lecho Dodi and greet the Shabbos Malka, close your eyes and really focus on accepting the neshama yeseirah.  If you do it right, you will feel it!
