The Nefesh HaChaim is the famous work of the student of the Vilna Gaon, Rav Chaim Volozhiner. This timeless sefer organizes the most basic principles of Jewish thought into a guide for understanding ourselves in the context of our spiritual reality. Tremendous depth is latent within us, created in the image of God. Reb Chaim explains how our thoughts, speech, and actions affect both the physical and spiritual realms; how an infinite God interfaces with our limited reality; and the power of Torah learning to change our selves, our lives and the world.
