pidyon nefesh (redemption of the soul), refers to the redeeming of a person from the suffering he is going through. Through the giving of a pidyon to an appropriate person, it is possible to exchange one’s suffering on to the redemption money.
The word pidyon is usually translated as “redemption,” referring to an exchange, whereby one exchanges money for something else.
Pidyon Nefesh is a very special and powerful prayer and blessing that has the spiritual strength of a sacrifice in the Bet Hamikdash to atone for sin and to mitigate severe judgments.
Rebbe Nachman of Breslev says
that Pidyon Nefesh is the “sweetening”, or mitigation of harsh decrees and serves as a salvation from any trouble, for the main cure and solution of sickness is the pidyon (see Likutei Moharan II:3).
One of the greatest ways to nullify harsh decrees and gain greater “mazal” (fortune) for health, livelihood and general success is to conduct a “pideyon nefesh.” The advantage of this method of healing is that it does not target a specific difficulty necessarily but encompasses one’s entire body from head to toe. There were people who conducted a “pideyon nefesh” and later reported that it corrected other even more difficult situations.
The bigger and more pious the tzaddik, the more effective the “pidyon”, which literally means “redemption”, where one’s money is literally a sacrifice for one’s body and soul. The pidyon money “redeems” the nefesh, or soul, in other words, “Pidyon Nefesh.” This is used when a major salvation is needed, such as in the case of a dangerous illness, a severe court case, or as a rescue from trouble or danger.
Any amount is acceptable, but for a Pidyon to be especially effective, one should give with dedication. One cannot hope for a major salvation without giving to the limits of one’s capability. We might just mention that all the above applies equally to Jew and non-Jew alike.
Any amount is acceptable with a miniumum of 160NIS or $45 or equivalent, but for a Pidyon to be especially effective, one should give with dedication. One cannot hope for a major salvation without giving to the limits of one’s capability.
