Part 2 - The MONTH of LETTER נ

Boruch Hashem, I'm posting Thursday evening as I expected to (in Eretz Yisrael here the clock already stroke 12, but I think it's close enough). Well first of all, I ended last night's post about 17 Tamuz as per the phrase that is connected to this month of Cheshvan - "U'Dvash Hayom Hazeh Hashem" where Hazeh is in Gematriya 17, so it is"the day of 17". At least according to Rabbi Eliezer who holds that in the context of the story of the Mabul in this week's Parshas Noach, Chodesh HaSheni, the second month refers to Cheshvan, counting the months from Tishrei, it says in the Posuk of the date the Mabul started "In the 600(th) year(s) of Noach's life on the second month on the 17th day of the month, on this day (Bayom Hazeh -on day 17 - in Gematriya) all the fountains of the great deep burst and the windows of the heavens opened" (Bereishis 7:11). The Zohar says something absolutely phenomenal. It predicts a "flood" of wisdom in the 6th century of the 6th millenium, that is the period of 5500-5600. And indeed, both the Torah world of Chasidus & Litvishe styles of learning, and in the secular industry of science & inventions, an amazing flood of wisdom came into this world. So in effect, 17 Cheshvan which is associated with this is ultimately connected with 17 Tamuz the date in the Petek which in turn became a beacon of light bringing Yidden closer to Yiddishkeit introducing them to the wisdom of Breslov, included in the era of Chasidus that started in the century as predicted by the Zohar.

As in the Sefer Torah where there is a Hefsek - a space between one section and another, I'm going to stop this particular blog at this point, as I have a whole another vort pertaining to the letter "Noon", the letter of the month, as it relates to Shiras HaYam, the first of the 10 songs, and the last of which is the Shir Chadash.
