what is gehenom is it fire, snow, or is it embarrassment that you carry with you in heaven?. i keep hearing a whole bunch of things.October 4, 2013 2:38 am at 2:38 am #977535nossbMember
I can’t tell you how it’s bad, since I don’t know, but I can tell you that it is very bad and no one wants to end up there. Whatever satisfaction someone will get for any aveira, gehenem is 100s of times more painful than whatever one gained.
And under normal circumstances the maximum punishment one can get is 11 months in gehenem.October 4, 2013 3:55 am at 3:55 am #977537Lost1970Member

According to the recent Pew survey, 16% of American Jews and 7% of American gentiles are atheists. They and several other classes of sinners will be punished eternally. (Rosh Hashana 17a)
I hope I can avoid eternal punishment. One year is not a long time.October 4, 2013 5:06 pm at 5:06 pm #977538WIYMember
One year in gehennom feels like an eternity. One moment probably does as well. Lets put it this way on earth theres a limit or threshold to how much pain you can take before you pass out or die. In gehennom you have no physical limitations so imagine that the pain can be moved up to many 1000000x of what can be tolerated here. No limitations no fainting no dieing just endless constant pain at the highest voltage. Scary to think about.October 5, 2013 8:31 pm at 8:31 pm #977539ChortkovParticipant

According to Reb Motel Weinberg A”H, the mashgiach in the lower bais medresh in Mesivta Chaim Berlin, Gehena(m) is 60 times hotter than the sun in Brighton Beach on a Sunday afternoon. And this was over 50 years ago. Oy vey ! could you imagine what it is today?October 6, 2013 8:31 pm at 8:31 pm #977546
Does global warming affect Gehenom?
