New Favorites

In Jewish Philosophy, we're now doing a Ramban, Sha'ar HeGemul, about Hell (he says it's a real place), and all that. He quotes a medrash in which R' Yehoshu'a ben Levi (an amora) says one time he went into Gehenom (Hell) and he measured the first room in it, and it was 100 miles by 50 miles. And he goes on to say that in the next rooms, that the 70 nations are there, 10 in each room, and in addition to these nations, there is 1 Jew who deserves to be there (for example, Korach is in one of the rooms with them, Do'eig is in one, Michah is, Yerov'am, etc). And in the rooms, there is an angel who is whipping them with whips of fire, and it names the names of each angel: Kushi'el, Lahati'el, Shfati'el, Kati'el, Chutri'el, Pusi'el, Dalki'el.

These just became my new favorite names (Lazar and Zechariya just got pushed down), and these are going to be the names of my sons. Will my future wife please note this.

why would you want to give your children those names?
