Does Judaism say that souls can or cannot be destroyed? Just asking because I was raised a Christian, and it didn't make any sense to me, at all, that a "soul" could be destroyed. All I know is that's an important part of Buddhism.

  • Why would a soul be any different than any other creation, which presumably can be destroyed just like it was created? – robev Oct 8 '17 at 19:42
  • Define what you mean by a soul being "destroyed." Do you mean that the soul ceases to exist or that it is punished eternally in Gehenna? – ezra Oct 9 '17 at 4:52
