In the last story of the Sipurey Masiyos – Rabbi Nachman’s “The Seven Beggars” – the fourth beggar (with a crooked neck) speaks about two birds that have been distanced from one another. The beggar describes his talent as a ventriloquist whereby he throws his voice to imitate the sound of each bird until the two are re-united. This alludes to the way Hashem used His “Voice” the first time He spoke to the prophet Shmuel.
