230. אָמַר לוֹ, שֶׁהֲרֵי קוֹל שֶׁל רֶמֶז אֶחָד שָׁמַעְתִּי יוֹם אֶחָד כַּאֲשֶׁר הָיִיתִי הוֹלֵךְ בַּדֶּרֶךְ, וְלֹא יָדַעְתִּי מִי אָמַר, וְלֹא יָדַעְתִּי דָבָר. וּבֹא רְאֵה, שִׁבְעָה יָמִים הָיוּ שֶׁנֶּחֱלַשְׁתִּי עַל זֶה וְלֹא טָעַמְתִּי דָבָר, וְעַתָּה הוֹלֵךְ אֲנִי אֵצֶל הַמְּנוֹרָה הַקְּדוֹשָׁה שֶׁיֹּאמַר לִי, שֶׁמָּא אֶזְכֹּר. אָמַר לוֹ, שֶׁמָּא אוֹתוֹ הַיּוֹם שֶׁהָיָה הוֹלֵךְ רַבִּי אֶלְעָזָר אֵצֶל חָמִיו, וְאוֹתוֹ הַיּוֹם הָלַכְתִּי עִמּוֹ, וְהִנֵּה נִזְכַּרְתִּי בַדָּבָר.
231. בֹּא רְאֵה, כָּךְ אָמַר רַבִּי אֶלְעָזָר מִשְּׁמוֹ שֶׁל אָבִיו, אָמְרוּ יִשְׂרָאֵל לִפְנֵי הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא: מִיּוֹם שֶׁנָּפַלְנוּ בַגָּלוּת, הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא עָזַב אוֹתָנוּ בַגָּלוּת וְשָׁכַח אוֹתָנוּ. זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב (ישעיה מט) וַתֹּאמֶר צִיּוֹן עֲזָבַנִי ה’ וַה’ שְׁכֵחָנִי. אָמְרָה הַשְּׁכִינָה: הֲתִשְׁכַּח אִשָּׁה עוּלָהּ?! וְכִי יִשְׂרָאֵל שֶׁנִּקְרָאִים בָּנִים, כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר (דברים יד) בָּנִים אַתֶּם לַה’ אֱלֹהֵיכֶם, מֵרַחֵם בֶּן בִּטְנָהּ, כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר (ירמיה ב) וְאָנֹכִי נְטַעְתִּיךְ שׂוֹרֵק כֻּלֹּה זֶרַע אֱמֶת, גַּם אֵלֶּה תִּשְׁכַּחְנָה, שֶׁכָּתוּב (בראשית ב) אֵלֶּה תוֹלְדוֹת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְהָאָרֶץ?! וְאָנֹכִי לֹא אֶשְׁכָּחֵךְ. מִכָּאן שֶׁהַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא לֹא עוֹזֵב אוֹתָם אֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל לְעוֹלָמִים.


Zohar Ha’azinu

Rabbi Chiya says that he was occupied with a specific study and while walking his way, he heard a voice, giving him a clue related to the meaning of his study but he forgot it. He didn’t recognize the voice nor who said it to him. He was sick for seven days because of it. Now he goes to Rabbi Shimon and hopes that he will help him remember.

Rabbi Elazar says in the name of his father that Israel says that since the day they fell into exile, the Holy One Blessed be He forgot them

Isaiah 49:14
“וַתֹּאמֶר צִיּוֹן עֲזָבַנִי יְהוָה וַאדֹנָי שְׁכֵחָנִי.”
“הֲתִשְׁכַּח אִשָּׁה עוּלָהּ מֵרַחֵם בֶּן בִּטְנָהּ גַּם אֵלֶּה תִשְׁכַּחְנָה וְאָנֹכִי לֹא אֶשְׁכָּחֵךְ.”
“And she (The Shechina) said; Zion has forsaken me, “YHVH And my God (ADNY) has forgotten me.”
In the verse that follows, the Shechina replies;
“הֲתִשְׁכַּח אִשָּׁה עוּלָהּ מֵרַחֵם בֶּן בִּטְנָהּ גַּם אֵלֶּה תִשְׁכַּחְנָה וְאָנֹכִי לֹא אֶשְׁכָּחֵךְ.”
“Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you.”

Israel is the children of the Shechina and even if they forget her, she and the Holy One Blessed be He, will never forget them.

The word for ‘male’ in Hebrew is ‘זכר’, is also the root for ‘זכירה’ ‘remembering’. We are in Malchut that is darkness and forgetfulness. Light is ‘male’ energy, and as we get closer to the Light we improve our memory. Rabbi Chiya wanted to visit Rabbi Shimon and connect to his great light to remember the study he was told by an unknown voice.
It is known that great Tzadikim have an amazing memory. The Gaon of Vilna was known with unparalleled memory. There is a great Tzadik in Israel that know all the Torah Talmud, Zohar, the Holy Ari, and most known commentary books by heart. He is only 32 years old, very humble, and when he comes to teach, he doesn’t prepare for a lecture. Many great rabbis come to his studies. A person can ask a random question and he can give a two hours discourse on all aspects of the subject with exact references from many sources without opening books. He is a holy man and is called the Yenuka, as the name of the special child from the Zohar.

For those who understand Hebrew, they can find some lectures on YouTube by searching on ‘הינוקא’ or ‘הרב שלמה יהודה בארי’.
Improve your memory by connecting to the Shchina with your Torah and Zohar studies and you won’t forget that are never forgotten.
