Pinchas: Nishmat Chaim

The 8th of Tammuz is the Yahrtzeit of Rav Chaim Mashash, author of the Nishmas Chaim: Pinchas has the same numerical value as Yitzchak: 208, to tell us that just as Yitzchak was willing to give up his life to sanctify the Name of God, so too, Pinchas, acted as he did, knowing that he was risking his life, to sanctify God’s Name. It was in this merit that the letter ‘Yud’ was added to his name; the letter that represents God’s Name. (Nishmat Chaim)
