Rare and unique, a lot of 2 pipes made from paper from the Kabbalistic elder, Rav Yitzhak Khadouri.

Lot of 2 pipes made of paper prepared and rolled by RavKhadouri in a unique way—his assistant and student Rabbi ben Tziyon testifies that he would smoke them with 11 inhalations as a symbol of the ketoret, and he would have kavanot while doing so to do tikkun for the souls of Israel destined for the fire. Afterwards he would traditionally put the pipes in gniza in a special box. The smoking of the Rav is written about in the book “Yeshuot Yitzhak” by Rabbi Meir Malka: “when Rabbeinu was checked by his personal doctor, Dr. Kleinman, during his hospitalization, he was completely surprised…when they did a bronchoscopy, his breathing system was like that of a 50-year-old…and not like those of someone who smoked his whole life until such an advanced age.” One page is 19cm, two others are 11.5cm. All of stains from use, having been put to the mouth of Rabbeinu. The silver pipe is 7.5cm. The mouthpiece is made from plastic with stains from use. Accompanied by a written certificate by his son, Rabbi David Khadouri: “All of the pipes for cigarettes are made by hand by my father…the kabbalist Rabbi Yitzhak Khadouri.” RavKhadouri was born at the end of the 19th century in Baghdad (Iraq), in his youth he knew and met the Ben Ish Hai, he received Torah and kabbalah from Baghdad’s sages and from Jerusalem’s sages after he moved there in 1922. During his first years in Jerusalem he made a livingbinding books and studied at the Beit El and Porat Yosef yeshivot in the Old City. Over the years, his wisdom became famous, his knowledge of mysticism—many went to his home to receive blessings and advice from him, and to receive amulets for their welfare. Died in 2006 after living more than 100 years, and thousands of Jews from all walks of life participated in his funeral.

Gold and silver jewelry hangs from the cover, items that righteous women removed and placed on it. | The “album” sefer torah is one of the most well-known Torahs from Yemen, written 400 years ago. Regarding the name “album,” they say that the sofer who wrote this sefer would fast greatly while writing it. Anyone who knocked on his door would be met with the response “album” (Yemenite: go away). Many miracles are bound up in this Torah, ill people who recovered, evil people who suffered, etc. Over the last years, the sefer remained in the village of Shahadiya, and during the Aliyah of the Yemenites to Israel they brought it with them. But the sefer has disappeared since arriving in Israel. (See “LeBaneichem Sifro” by Rav Gilad Tzadok, Bnei Brak, 2000, pp. 231-234). 110x70cm. Good condition.

The beautiful Aron Kodesh of the Great Synagogue of Siret in Romania—beginning of the 19th century. A museum-worthy item of extreme historic value.

A large holy ark made from wood and fenced in metal, with wonderful decorations, some of which are gilded in the classical Eastern European style. Built probably in the beginning of the 19th century, it stood in all its glory in the city of Siret in the Bokovina district of Romania, at the Great Synagogue “Die Grosse Shul”—the only synagogue that remained in the city after World War II. The *city Siret* is currently a border town and crossing into Ukraine and had a Jewish community for hundreds of years, including many chassidim and Jewish sages. Includes the Admor (1st) of Siret Vizhnitz, Rabbi Baruch Hager (the “Makor Baruch”) who served as rabbi of the city and established a yeshiva there. The Admorim of Nadvorna, including Rabbi Chaim Mordechai Rosenbaum, author of the Divrei Chaim and his son, the Admor Yaakov Issachar Ber Rosenboim, HaBar Yaakov, was born in the city, Rabbi Yosef Naftali Stern, who later became the head of the Pressburg Yeshiva in Jerusalem and a member of the Council of Torah Sages, etc. Zionist youth movements were also active in the city, the most prominent of which were Hanoar Hazioni and Beitar. * The synagogue * According to the testimony of a native of the city, former MK Yitzhak Artzi (the father of the singer Shlomo Artzi and the writer Nava Semel), seven synagogues were in the city: "As the Sabbath began, the seven synagogues in the town were worshiped, Vizhnitz, where Grandpa and I prayed, the Sadiger Kloiz of the Sadigura Hasidim, the Beit Midrash, the tailors' synagogue of the "Shneidreishe Shul", the "Nadvorner Shul", the "Boyaner Schul" and the "The Great Synagogue.” It was the center of life in the town, the religious gatherings were held there, and even the Hasidim who used to pray in the various synagogues would enter from time to time to pray in a place that was also a prominent Torah site. During the Second World War, the Jews of the city were deported to the plains of Transnistria and the Jewish community was exterminated, with few Jews returning to the city after the war and those who guarded the synagogue with devotion. * The Ark * The Holy Ark in the Central Synagogue was decorated with wooden beams with a Star of David with a caption bearing the inscription "And you made an offering of pure gold", and above it the Tablets of the Ten Commandments with large wooden reliefs vases and flowers. The entire cabinet is decorated with wooden decorations, some of which are golden. In front of the ark is a hand-made metal railing. The curtain is a bright floral pattern, with the symbols of the Star of David on it embroidered: "This is evidence of the generosity of Mr. Manali Satungar and his son for the soul of his wife and their mother M. Yantu [Yenta] Rachel B. Elijah [daughter of Elijah] Pinhas Nef [died] [1944] in Mogilov (Mohilev-Podilsky-Ukraine) [Many of the Bukovina Jews died in this city during the Second World War]. "According to expert estimates, the Holy Ark was built in the synagogue at the beginning of the 19th century, A few years ago, during a visit to the city of Siret, it became clear that the ancient Holy Ark, located in the area, was meant for some reason to be dismantled in order to create a new Holy Ark. The Holy Ark, and in exchange for a professional and responsible division of the old in order to preserve it for future generations.In a complex operation and after great efforts, the ark was brought to Israel a few months ago and is now here before you in all its glory.
