Bava Metzia 42a
Proven Segulah by
Rav Hai Gaon
The Minhag is to stretch out the והוא רחום & ברכו on Motzai Shabbos. (said
slowly) (רמ"א או"ח רצ"ג:ג)
The שערי תשובה quotes the בה"ג that one should
also answer back ברוך ה' המבורך לעולם ועד slowly. Doing so
prevents bad things from happening in the coming week.
The Chida writes, he saw the handwriting* of R Chaim Vital who quoted רב האי
גאון that stretching out the ברוך ה' המבורך on Motzai Shabbos is a proven
Segulah to have הצלחה.
Supposedly, R Ch.Vital asked that all his כתבים should be destroyed before they bury him and it was done so. ???

WHEN WAS THE BA'AL SHEMTOV NIFTAR
WHO DID THE TAHARA & KEVURAH?
In a Ksav Yad (manuscript) from the son of the Toldos it is written
The Besht was Niftar on the first day of Shavuos 6th of Sivan
on a Wednesday.
Many other Seforim follow this Mesorah (tradition) and agree
he was Niftar on the first day YomTov.
he Sefer Melietzei Aish and some other Seforim claim The Besht
was Niftar the second day of Shavuos. (can't be on a Wednesday)
The previous Skolye Rebbe zt"l said There is a Mesorah that the
Besht said " At my Yetzias Neshama all clocks in Meshbuz will stop".
The Besht was Niftar the second night Shavuos at midnight
and all the clocks in Meshbuz stopped exactly at12.00
(I wonder how many clocks Meshbuz had in those days)
The Darkei Chaim V'sholom (Minchas Elozor) writes The Besht was
Niftar on the first day Yom Tov and the Chasidim followed the
Halacha יתעסקו בו עממין to have Goyim take care of the body and
The Sefer Shemuos V'Sipurim writes " R. L. Y. Schneerson zt"l asked
from The Lubavitcher Rebbe The Marshab zt"l (R. Sholem Ber)
Who took care of the body of the Besht ?" (YomTov)
The Marshab answered" the body of the Besht didn't require
others to take care of
A different version of his answer "The Besht buried himself.after
his Petira, no grave diggers were needed."

ואחת קבעה סעודתא בערב שבת ושתיהן נעקרו
Rashi explains that they were punished because they ate the main meal on Friday night.
We Pasken כבוד יום קודם לכבוד לילה They should have waited for the daytime to eat the main Seudah"
Mori V’rabi Harav Hagaon Reb Shlomo Miller Shlita
It is not proper to serve Cholent Friday night. Cholent is a designated food for the סעודת היום. Eating Cholent at night violates כבוד יום קודם לכבוד לילה.
