    The shechina went up and down and up and down again

    It sounds like the shechina started off down here on earth. So we basked in its glory.  Then 7 types of aveirahs and each time the shechina retreated a level till the top  7th floor far from us on the ground floor. Avraham turned it around and brought it  down a level and this continued with the generations of avos until Moshe pulled it back to the ground floor when we stood at Sinai. 

     We lost a level with the chet haegel soon afterwards but it came back to our level with the mishkan. 

      Presumably the shechina was also down here during the botei Mikdash.  

      Did it depart one or more levels with each churban and attendant golus? 

      Where is it now? One floor up or more?

    Hashem has several names according to His function at the time

    1. Lehavdil elef havdales,  the president has various powers,  various functions, various abilities and therefore various titles.  When he signs executive orders, he is the chief executive carrying out acts of  state. When he directs the armed forces he is the commander in chief. When he pardons he acts as a judge. When he signs or refuses to sign acts of congress he acts as a legislator, law giver. When negotiating with other heads of  state he is like a monarch.

      In 5721 the Rebbe said the Maamar Basi Legani based on ch. 11 of the original maamar. In 5741, the maamar is also based on ch. 11, but it is of course a very different maamar.
