“A Certain Old Man” (43a-43b)

One of Rav’s students, Rav Adda bar Ahavah (Rav Adda the son of “love”) laments that “Our teacher Rav has died and we have not learned from him even the laws of Bircat Ha’Mazon!” And then a certain old man appears, thought to be none other than Elijah the prophet, and the contradictions between the Mishnah and the Baraisa are resolved.

And so it is as we go about the day let us always be on the look out for a “certain old man” or a “certain old woman” who points the way to resolution of all contradictions …. helping us to return to wholeness and all that is One.

Shabbat Shalom!
