The Unborn Resurrected

R’ Moshe Feinstein[1] discusses if those souls who died before birth will rise with Techias Hamaisim and merit eternal life. He writes that the halacha is in accordance with Ravina who rules that a soul merits eternal life starting from the moment of conception.[2] Even if the soul never makes it into the world (i.e., miscarriage), the soul merits eternal life and will rise to meet its parents at Techias Hamaisim.

Another very meaningful fact to know is that although there is no living child at the conclusion of this pregnancy, it still brings Moshiach’s arrival closer.[3] This is because in Heaven there is a Heichal Ha’neshamos, a Sanctuary of Souls, the source from which all the souls come, and the final redemption will not come until all souls have left this sanctuary and descended to this world.[4] Each soul has its own unique mission to fulfill in this world and is allotted the lifespan necessary to fulfill that mission.
