Nachas HaShulchan: Resurrection Every Morning

נחת השלחן: דין ברכת אשר יצר

(Painting by David Freidman)

Blessed are You, Hashem, who returns souls to lifeless bodies.

It is a tremendous wonder that specifically through sleep, which is the Side of Death, one’s strength, soul, mind, and vitality are renewed.  Here, we are able to see that Hashem’s glory fills the entire world, for even through the Side of Death itself there is an aspect of life, Godliness, and Holy Intellect.  Therefore, our sages have said that through this we learn to believe in the truth of the Resurrection .
