Leaving Eretz Yisrael #3

Rav Asi had an elderly mother. She said to him: I want jewelry. Rav Asi got them for her. She said: I want a man to marry. He said: I will look. His mother: I want you to find a man as beautiful as yourself for me to marry! He then understood that she was not able to think clearly and he was unable to honor her properly. He decided to leave her and find others to take care of her. Rav Asi made Aliyah. He heard that she was coming after him. He asked Rabbi Yochanan: Am I permitted to leave Eretz Yisrael to greet her and come back with her? Rabbi Yochanan responded: I don't know. Rav Asi waited a while and then came to ask again. Rabbi Yochanan said: "Asi, I see that you want to go. Hashem should return you safely." Rav Asi went to Rabbi Elazar and asked: Perhaps, G-d forbid, Rabbi Yochanan is angry at me? He said: What did he actually say to you? He responded: "Hashem should return you safely." Rabbi Elazar: If he was angry with you, he would not have blessed you. Rav Asi left Eretz Yisrael, but before he reached her, he was informed that she had died and she was being brought to Eretz Yisrael for burial. He said: Had I known, I would not have left Eretz Yisrael (Kiddushin 31b, Meharsha ibid., Rambam Hilchot Mamrim 6:10 and see Yam Shel Shlomo on Kiddushin ibid. and Shut Noda Bi-Yehuda Tanina Even Ha-Ezer #45).
