The Shechina, or Divine Presence, is mentioned as being present in a number of different situations in the Talmud:
- When 1, 2, 3, 5, or 10 people sit and occupy themselves with Torah, (Avot 3:2,6, Ber 6a)
- When 10 gather to pray, (Ber 6a)
- When three sit as judges, (ibid)
- with a sick man, specifically above his head in bed (Shab 12b)
- Wherever Israel is exiled, (Meg 29a)
To name a few1.
Is the dwelling of the Divine Presence a perceivable experience? Do any sources discuss what palpable sentiments or energies in a given situation indicate the dwelling of the Shechina?
