Sunday’s Spark of Mussar

Rav Yitzchok Blazer

Sometimes our sages use the expression “goes down to Gehinom”; other times they say “falls into Gehinom.”  R’ Itzele explained that the difference reflects the different kinds of sins.  Sometimes the descent into Gehinom is a gradual decay process.  But there are some sins that catapult a person into Gehinom in a flash.
