Get the joke?




This coming שבת ר"ח חנוכה  we will be
reading from three different ספרי תורה.

Some claim, in the name of one of the Gerer Rebbes
to have quoted from the ספר היכלות that on a day when
3 ספרי תורה are  taken out of the ארון הקדש there
is a special סגולה during פתיחת הארון to have  your
תפילות for your needs & wants to be accepted.

I checked the entire ספר היכלות and there is absolute no
mention of 3 ספרי תורה or any such סגולה etc.

As far as I know, this סגולה has no early מקור. It was
probably made up by one of the Chasidic Rebbes.
based on a פסוק in יחזקאל מ""ו
 כֹּה אָמַר ה' - שַׁעַר הֶחָצֵר -- יִהְיֶה סָגוּר שֵׁשֶׁת יְמֵי הַמַּעֲשֶׂה,
וּבְיוֹם הַשַּׁבָּת יִפָּתֵחַ וּבְיוֹם הַחֹדֶשׁ יִפָּתֵחַ.
 Not only are the gates of the Bais Hamikdash
opened on Shabbos or on Rosh Chodesh but
also, the gates of heaven are opened, especially
when we have both, Shabbos & Rosh Chodesh.
(and even more so when we also have חנוכה)

It's very likely, someone asked, in which ספר can one
find this סגולה and was jokingly answered
that it's found in a nonexistent ספר היכלות  a ספר on
הלכות ארון הקדש The term היכל is used for  ארון הקדש
הכל תלוי במזל אפילו ס"ת שבהיכל 
זהר פ' נשא
Sefardim to this day call it a Heichal

Hence the confusion of those who mistakenly
believe the מקור is in the original ספר היכלות
which is מיוחס להתנא ר' ישמעאל
