The identity of the Yonah


"Yonah, who descends into the boat, is the soul of a person which descends to this world to live in the body of a person. Why is it called a “Yonah”? Because once it partners with a body like this, it suffers (yonah) in this world, as it is said, “And you shall not cause one another to suffer (tonu).”"

(Zohar, Shemot 199a)

Have a great day,
