Afterlife 2
Moshe Ben-Chaim
Reader: I believe that all Jews who are deceased will be restored to life and returned to Eretz Yisrael. My question is, will spouses find each other? Will men and women be able to speak to each other, or will the women be confined to the balcony when the Bais HaMikdash is restored, as was done during the Simchas Bais HaShoeva?
Mesora: All laws will be intact. I do not know why people should not find each other, or if it will happen. This area is rarely discussed, as the Torah's goal is that man live a life not based on imagined good in the hereafter, but that he live in accord with that which is pleasant during this life. The Torah provides the best life for us here.
This is the focus of the Torah, and what should be the focus of our lives.
