Acharei Mot: Chapter 53

"That his mother taught him"


Rabbi Shimon tells his son that as long as the children of Yisrael obey the will of God, He stays with them, but when they disobey Him he leaves them, yet still the Shechinah stays with them and thus she is separated from God. Because she produced Solomon, her wise son, there was great rejoicing when Solomon attained wisdom and recited Shir Hashirim; then God made his residence with her. At that time all the children of Yisrael merited the higher levels, and there was joy above and below.
