January 29, 2006, died Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri, one of the most famous rabbis of Israel, the leading Sephardi Kabbalist of his time. Then they all said that he left one of the greatest Jewish teachers XX century. Rabbi was — according to different sources — from 106 to 118 years.
Before his death, he regained consciousness and asked to be left alone with the four closest disciples. Then said:
- If Kabbalists explore what I said in the last few months about the coming Messiah, then find his name, hidden in my words that opened my 9 year Cheshvan 5764 (11 November 2003). On the same day I received to meet with him face to face. He is here, he is among us, but he would not come and say, I Messiah, follow me. Kabbalists have to find it among the "hidden" words, and then the people of Israel should ask the Messiah to become king. A few minutes later, he whispered to one of his disciples esoteric expansion code name. Who was he said the code, the students refused to report.
Name of the Messiah
A few months before the death of Yitzhak Kaduri, wrote the name of the Messiah in a small note which he requested to print a year after his death. When the note was printed, it revealed what many have known for centuries: Yehoshua, or Yeshua (Jesus) is the Mashiach (Messiah).
Biblical name Yehoshua rabbi and kabbalist described the Messiah using six words and hinting that the initial letters form the name of the Messiah. The secret note said: "With regard to the letters that make up the name of the Messiah, he rose NATION and prove that his word and law is invalid. I signed it in the month of mercy. Yitzhak Kaduri "
This proposal is in Hebrew (translated above in capital letters) with the hidden name of the Messiah in it reads: Yarim Ha "Am Veyohiah Shedvaro Vetorato Omdim.
The first letters are the Hebrew name Yeshua, Yehoshua. Yehoshua and Yeshua — is almost the same name, derived from the same root in Hebrew, the word "salvation", as recorded in Zeharya 6:11 and Ezra 3:2. The same priest writes in Ezra, "Ben-Yeyshua Yotsadak," and in the book Zeharyi "Yehoshua son Yeotsadaka." The priest adds the holy abbreviation of God's name, ho, in the father's name Yotsadak and Yeyshua name.
Reaction to death note
Associates have long been told that Rabbi Kaduri had visions, during which he spoke with the Messiah. But when the letter opened, then shocked. After the Messiah's name sounded like Yeshua — Jesus. The entire Israeli press, actively writing about the funeral of a rabbi, though now his mouth with water gathered. On the discovery announced only a few Hebrew-speaking newspapers and portal «Israel Today».
"I do not want to question the authority of the late rabbi, but in this case a lot of dubious — said Rabbi Jacob Moshe Poupko of Jerusalem. — Yeshua — a popular name among the Jews, and it is unclear what kind of Yeshua in this case is about. This is not necessarily the gospel Jesus. "
Of the supporters of the late Rabbi believe that this letter — fake. According to 80-year-old son, Rabbi David Kaduri, his father in the last years of his life was in such poor shape that I could not write anything yourself. However, the very David Kaduri confirmed that last year, his father said, and dreamed almost exclusively about the Messiah and his coming. "My father saw the Messiah in a vision — he said — and told us that he would come soon."
Two former employees of a rabbi, which is associated with a web portal «Israel Today», also confirmed the authenticity of the will. They remembered Kaduri was sure the imminent coming of the Messiah.
"People think about how it sounds name of the Messiah. To many it is well known, but they do not believe it — the Messiah "- often said the rabbi.
Sensational information has caused shock in Israel. "Does this means that equal Kaduri to Christianity? '" Christians rejoice sing and dance "- the phrases appeared on many online forums.
"This is actually good news, — said John Vennari, editor of the conservative American magazine« Catholic Family News ». — But if the Jews do not know the Messiah, who was among them, they are unlikely to believe in it now. "
"All this is truly amazing. Maybe the rabbi and asked, but maybe he was referring to some other Yeshua — told «Rzeczpospolita» Professor Seth Kunin of the British University of Durham. — Despite the fact that in reality meant the rabbi, all this is unlikely to have serious consequences. Jews and Christians bicker about whether Jesus Messiah for over 2000 years, and no letter rabbi, even the most reputable, does not change anything. "
When the name of Yehoshua appeared in Kaduri's message, ultra-Orthodox Jews in Nahalat Yitzhak Yeshiva (seminary) in Jerusalem, disputed this, saying that their teacher did not leave the exact solution for decoding the Messiah's name.
In an interview with Israel Today Rabbi David Kaduri, the 80-year-old son of Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri, denied that his father left a note before he died with the name of Yeshua. "It's not, he wrote," — he said when we showed him a copy of the note. When we told Rabbi Kaduri that his father's official website (www.kaduri.net) mentioned the Messiah note, he was shocked: "Oh no! This is blasphemy. People may think that my father pointed to him [the Messiah of Christians]. "
Israel Today access many rabbis manuscripts, written in his own hand, exclusively for students. Most striking was the fact that on each page Kaduri painted symbols like the cross. In Jewish tradition, one does not use crosses. In fact, even the plus sign is not recommended to use, because it can be mistakenly taken as a cross. But they were there, drawn by the rabbi himself. When asked about the meaning of these symbols, Rabbi David Kaduri said it "marks an angel." When we went to try to find what the "signs Angel", he replied that he has no idea. Rabbi David Kaduri went on and explained that only his father had had a spiritual relationship with God, and met the Messiah in his dreams.
Orthodox Jews in Nahalat Yitzhak Yeshiva few weeks later, after reading the note said the newspaper Israel Today, the story about the secret note of Rabbi Kaduri should not appear at all, and it damaged the name of revered old sage.
The oldest Israeli Kabbalist Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri, calls Jews around the world to return to Israel to escape the natural disasters that threaten the world.
During the classes, which equals spent in his yeshiva and Maarivom between Mincha (afternoon and evening prayers), he said: "I am making this statement, and I want it to be heard around the world. Jews must return immediately to Israel as world threatened by the terrible natural disaster. In the future, the Holy One, blessed be His Name, nashlet terrible natural disasters on countries to facilitate the trial of the Land of Israel.
I order to publish this statement as a warning to Jews in other countries around the world have realized the impending danger, and returned to the Land of Israel for the construction of the Temple and the phenomena of our righteous Moshiach (Messiah). "
Rabbi Kaduri also said that the new Jewish year will be the "mystery and revelation" in the world. Jewish year 5766 begins on the evening October 3 The rabbi explained that the Hebrew lettering "Tav", "tire", "Sameh", "Vav" indicates the nature of the coming year. This will be the year of mystery ("SOD" — the letter "Sameh") and revelation ("vgiluy" — the letter "vav").
The correspondent of "Arutz-7," Yehoshua Meiri, who conducted the interview with Rabbi Kaduri, recorded his words, gave the rabbi to read, and Rabbi Kaduri has signed the document.
Rav Kaduri sent his aides to Prime Minister Sharon on the eve of departure to Washington, he called for the repatriation of the Jews.
According to Meiri, he published a statement signed by Rabbi Ariel Sharon after delivering a speech in the UN, where he must appeal to the Diaspora Jews calling for repatriation.
Rav Kaduri predicted great misfortunes that befall the world. Two weeks before the tsunami hit Southeast Asia, Rabbi Kaduri told "Yediot Ahronot": "We are now in the fourth year of what is called the seven-year period of redemption, according to the calculations of the Vilna Gaon. In the next three years we will be in a state of complete uncertainty, if we do not prepare for the coming of the Messiah. Mashiach already in Israel. The fact that people think that probably will not happen, will happen, and what will happen to disappoint us. But in the end, there will be peace in the world. World mitigated through strict justice. In the world anticipated the great tragedy, and that the Jews should know, going to the East. But our enemies can not defeat us in the Land of Israel, "fear and trembling to cover them."
A week before the interview Rabbi Kaduri said: "We can save the world from harm through true repentance of the Jews, who should be more kindness and goodwill to each other. Cry poor and the expulsion of Jews from their homes shakes the foundations of peace. Completely accidental blow came to the place where our people have gone in pursuit of worldly temptations.
Rabbi Kaduri told his disciples that the current government will be the last government of "old age." According to him, Sharon will be the last prime minister of Israel, and the new government will be the leadership of the Messianic suicide note and ordered him to open the year after his death. It turned out that, in the opinion of Rabbi Kaduri, name of the Messiah — Joshua (??).
Rav passed away January 8, 2006. The last way to saw off all the major rabbis and Israeli policy, as well as hundreds of thousands of followers.
