    The Mershoh explains that if someone lives through two thirds of his accountable years he wil not sin anymore.
    The fifty days of sefira is fifty years that a person is heavenly accountable. The normal life is sevehty from which he is not responsiiblle for twenty years and two thirds of fifty is around thirty three. By birrh of a boy the firsr thirty three days is yemei tohoro.

    All three of the sofers, the Chasam Sofer, his son the Ksav Sofer and his son the Shevet Sofer three generatiions where each one served around thirty three years a total of a hundred years in rabonus based on
    גל עיני ואביטה נפלאות מתורתך open my eyes that I can see wonders from your Torah, where ‘gal’ is thirty three.

    The Zohar, Rav Shimon bar Yochai says ישראל ואורייתא וקב’ה חד הוא can be understood seeing ourselves around a circle and Hashem is in the middle. All of us are equal distance from the center and part of the circle. Through the Torah we unite and become a smaller circle and eventually become one point which coincides with the center.

    How can the above be reconciled with Yochanan Kohen Gadol?

    a teshuvah (responsum) of Rav Shmuel Wosner z”l, stemming from a תוספתא that states המרקד לשלהבת הרי זה מדרכי אמורי.

    Lag B’Omer [ Has gone so overboard & taken so overboard one can conjecture it] borders on Bal Tosif

    Where is Kever Rashbi located ?

    According to R. Menachem Hachevroni (14th century) in Kfar Chananya
    (15 km. south of Meron)

    2) When was Rashbi niftar ?

    According to the Chida there is no Mekor that he was niftar on Lag Baomer

    3) Who wrote the Zohar ?

    According to the Yavetz it was R. Moishe d’Leon

    4) How can you bring nachas to Rashbi (guaranteed) ?

    The Shoel Umeishiv ( 5 – 39) writes ” if you distribute the money to Aniyei Eretz Yisroel
    instead of spending it to go to his Kever etc., he guarantees Rashbi will have much more Nachas Ruach.

    There is a remez in Breishis for Rashbi aleph, tov indicating that he ecplained everything from beginning to the end.

    The Ostrovtzer, Meir Einei Chachomim, ties multiple views of Rebbe Shimon together for Lag Baomer.

    Dear Truth,

    That is Not what the Yavetz says regarding the Zohar. He insists that Rab Shimon is the central author of the Zohar. The point is that certain practical halacha in the Zohar, is only practiced by the Sefardim. Because those passages were added in Spain.

    @it is time for truth
    virtually all the gedolai yisrael hold that the zohar is from the rashbi, including the arizal, the gra and his talmidim, the baal shem tov and his talmidim. the ramchal and his talmidim. and many many others.

    The Magen Avraham SA, O’CH 25,11 says, on the sfard custom of putting tefilin on the hand sitting down from the Radvas, that halacha trumps kabala, so it should be done standing at least the brocho.

    Dear Yid,

    Authorship meant something completely different to the luminaries of yore. And still, the only one (To my little knowledge.) that puts Reb Shimon as the author of the Zohar is the G”RA. If you have a good source on the Ba’al Shem and the origins of the Zohar, I would absolutely love to hear about it!

    The yaavetz wrote a whole treatise on this very topic. Mitpachat Sofrim. Though I do not agree with how his conclusions are commonly quoted.

    A talmid of the talmid of the GRA (Rav Menachem Mendel of Shakelav) Rav Yitzchak Eisick Chaver in his sefer Pischei Sheorim explains the kabalistic terminologies in simple lashon hakadesh.

    Look at chabad web site to see a discussion about who wrote the Zohar under the heading The Zohar’s Mysterious Origins by searching for Zohar.

    Dear Reb Eliezer,

    I’ve see it. It does not add any merits to the antiquity of the Zohar. It is clear that the author of the Zohar had the Talmud in book form. The best question is what were the principle sources.
