    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.

    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.

    Truth, see Teshuva Meahava 1:26 about the Zohar
