Abstract

This paper reveals one of the most unique Zoharic Shema mysteries identified as Rav Hamnuna Sabba's Mystery of Unity. This mystery is deeply connected to two narrative figures in Zoharic literature: The Yanuka (the Zoharic wunderkind) and the Saba (the wise old man). This paper argues that various poetic aspects of these two figures illuminate the theosophic and mystical contents of their homilies as can be shown in the various homilies of the Yanuka and Saba on their unique Shema mystery.
