I’ve heard numerous times online that some Jewish people believe in reincarnation. Some of these people have told me that sometimes a Jewish person was very bad in a past life and as a punishment, they’re reincarnated into a “bad” human life.
My soul, or whatever you want to call it, feels old. Like I’ve been on this earth before. Been to hell and back again. I have also developed schizophrenia which I believe is caused by the spiritual world punishing me.
Yet despite all my research into various religions, Orthodox Judaism is the one that I keep going back to.
Is the reincarnation/punishment theory true?
