Fountain pen with which the kabbalistic elder Rav Yitzhak Khadouri wrote amulets.

In his book, “Yeshuot Yitzhak,” Rav Meir Malka writes about the amulets that RavKhadouri gave: “it is known that Rabbeinu wrote amulets, but he never dealt in practical kabbalah or oaths of angels, and when he was asked whether it was allowed to swear by angels, he laughed and said that it was forbidden to take oaths. They asked him: How could it be that the amulets he gave out could have influence and work? He said: maybe heaven honors me and hear my voice and fulfill my requests since I am old. Thus my amulets work. Then Rabbeinu would smile completely at his own joke. The fountain pen is made from metal, the handle is made from plastic. Length: 19cm. Very good condition. Accompanied by a picture of his son, Rav David Khadouri, with the fountain pen when it was being given. 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.
