“Ruha” is Spirit in Aramaic and also means, “breath” and “wind”.

The English “Holy Ghost” is a misnomer, and the real terminology used In Aramaic the term “Ruha d’qadisha” רוחא קדישא means “Spirit of Holiness”, or “breath of holiness” or “holy wind”, and can have all three connotations, even simultaneously with one another; and is never portrayed as a manifest person or entity.
