Lilit

Rabbi Chaim Tabasky14 Kislev 5765

Question
In Yeshayahu ( Isaiah ) Ch ,34 verse 14 it speaks of Lilit { the night monster } will lurk there and find herself a resting place. My question is what is a Lilit ? { Night monster } ?
Answer
Most commentaries identify Lilit as a type of demon. If demons are actual realities, physical or spiritual, is an open question. The Rambam denies the existence of demons in our time, others disagree. There are certainly personal "demons" that plague us individually and communally.
