Today is 51st day of the Omer, Petek day-- I gave that lesson last year.
This year I was studying Gemara with the new group at EBAY during Shavuot they were going over the issue of studying with or without working (Rabbi Shimon and Rabbi Ishmael) In a related passage, Rabbi Eliezer and his father come out of the cave and everyone Rabbi Eliezer looks at gets consumed by fire and Rabbi Shimon brings them back to life. Then the two see an old man a Zaken a Saba de Sabin and he is carrying TWO sets of Hadass for Havdalah. SO they ask why two the Halacha says ONE, to which the old man replies "Zachor ve Shamor" you need two. A voice was heard that they should go back to the cave for another 12 months, not years (like previously). Indeed they wrote the Zohar during that year.
It is only thanks to Saba, Ebay Ha Nachal, that the Zohar was written!
The Torah in Likutey Moharan which the Na Nachs were studying was affirming that a man needs only to pray and have faith since G-d does everything. Apparently Saba didn't study the Halacha, but Hashem made sure he did the mitsvah the right way, and because of that we have the Zohar today.
The Petek repeats the word AVODA (work) three times. The saying is tzedaka, tora, tfila or something....but Saba says Avoda, avoda, avoda. This means PRAYER, PRAYER, PRAYER.
