He began to become famous wen Rav Kook claimed that he was one of the 36 hidden tzaddikim. Jews began visiting his home asking for a blessing, mainly for medical reasons, barren women, and shidduchs. He joined a group of kabbalists who studied together in the 1960s and became nicknamed for his profession. Many famous rabbis visited his home.

Before his death he left a closed bottle of wine and ordered it to be opened only after the victory over Gamal Abdul Nasser. Six months after his death, the Six-Day War broke out, followed by the opening of the bottle of wine, a taste from which was considered a segula.
